Common Issues

Common problems with uninstalling an app include:

Cannot delete files

Issue: When trying to delete the old site folder from FTP, an error message appears, or undeleted files and folders remain on the server.

Cause: It could be a problem with file permissions, or an error on the FTP itself.

Solution: First, repair file permissions according to this guide and wait 10 minutes. Then try to delete the remaining folder/files again.

If files still cannot be deleted, or you cannot log into your account at all, please create a temporary FTP account for support and contact us. Include the Webhosting name (e.g. domain.tld), the FTP account name you are logging in with (e.g. w123456_admin), the name of the folder you are trying to delete and the error message text.


Question: Why can’t I install another app after uninstalling it?
Answer: Make sure you remove the entire folder with the previous installation on FTP. If you encounter other problems with the installation of a new application, solve them according to the guide Webhosting – App Installer.

Question: We accidentally uninstalled the app, how can we restore it?
Answer: Uninstalling in the administration panel deletes the database, you delete the files on FTP manually. If you have a backup of the app, you can restore it, or you can request a backup from us. In either case, follow this guide on backing up your website.
