    Hi,

    I'm about to upgrade my forum soon. Now I wonder what the proper way would be to uninstall an add-on?

    Simply uninstall the xml file of the add on from your Acp. Then remove its files from your server as well.

    And some add-ons does not have any files, just an XML?

    Correct.

    Those aren't strictly add-ons, typically template modifications.

    I realized it sometimes can be tricky to locate the files. Not always are the add-on files visible directly under the library folder. Once I locate them I write the path down for the real forum update.

    You should note that if it is a minor upgrade that you are doing, then most likely you won''t need to uninstall the mods. That is if they are compatible with the new version. Which is usually the case with minor upgrades.

    I'm upgrading from 1.1. I have gone through all the add-ons that I have installed and marked them whether they support 1.4 or not.

    If a certain add-on needs to be upgraded in order for it to work with the new xf version, do I upgrade it before or after the xf upgrade? Is there a general rule for this?

    It depends on the add-on.

    The best thing to do is check with the author.

    In that case it is better to upgrade the add on after you upgrade your forum imo.

    That's what I thought too.
