I want to remove Apptha HdVideoShare Template but fail

Post by shih789 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 9:58 pm

I want to uninstall a template called HD video. However, joomla can't remove it thoroughly.

This is the file I want to uninstall:

The system message is :
Warning
Package Uninstall: Missing manifest file.
×
Message
Error uninstalling package.

Does anyone know how to remove this Package?

The files may be deleted. Does the extension appear in the component list? What you see in the extension manger is being read from the database. If the files do not exist, you can delete the entry manually from the _extensions table via your host's control panel database manager. If there are DB tables related to the extension, you should delete those.

This message in error_log of site keeps repeating, can I solve it?

Post by shih789 » Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:12 am

My site works OK now, because it hasn't go live. However, I saw the error log is FULL of this same message as below:

[17-Oct-2018 07:59:01 UTC] PHP Warning: include_once(): Failed opening '/home/erzuydhx/public_html/components/com_contushdvideoshare/helper.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/opt/alt/php72/usr/share/pear') in /home/erzuydhx/public_html/plugins/content/hvsarticle/hvsarticle.php on line 16


"hvsarticle" is a video sharing template I installed for trial but don't need it anymore. I hope not to see this message again. I have uninstalled it from my Joomla Back-end.

Then, I searched the "hvsarticle" in my joomla file. I found the file of that name and deleted already. However, this message still keeps coming up. Does anyone understand this message and how to get it disappear in my error_log?

The video sharing component uses a content plugin that needs a file from the component folder you removed. Go to Extensions - Plugins and search for the content plugin 'hvsarticle', then uninstall.

At my joomla backend, I can't find a plugin called "hvsarticle". The only thing I still see related to that template is as below:

But this file can't be uninstalled at my Backend, the message joomla shows are:
Warning
Package Uninstall: Missing manifest file.
×
Message
Error uninstalling package.


I also went to the database and deleted the form related to it. However, didn't see any differences.

Components and packages are uninstalled from Extensions - Manage. If you remove the folder, the manifest file is gone but the extensions table in the database still has a row containing the details of the extension.

If the PHP warning about the missing file is still written to the PHP error log, the content plugin 'hvsarticle' needs to be disables or uninstalled. Its files are still in the file system and it is also included in the extensions table in the database, but you could disable it from there. Obviously it would be better to uninstall it if the plugin is now useless. It may be known by another name, if you list all the content plugins in Extensions - Plugins.
