XF 1.4 Re-install installed add-ons

Hi,

I replaced the files with my back-up but I'm the new database. The problem is, the newly installed add-ons could not be uninstalled because the files were gone. I tried to install them again, but it says "add-on is already installed. How can I re-install or remove the installed add ons from the database to be able to install it again?

As I stated in your ticket, you will need to upload the files again in order to use or uninstall the add-ons.

Most add-ons require at least the installation file in order to be uninstalled.

It's okay now. Thanks Brogan! I only have one problem. I installed one file using the addon installer. Will it be also the same directory in uploading the files manually?

The add-on installer just replicates the manual process, so the file locations and directories will be the same.
