    How to totally Uninstall Gantry 4.X

    Posted 7 years 2 months ago
    • I'm assuming that you are reading this as you've updated Gantry and something went very wrong :(

      These are the steps to totally remove Gantry from your site:

      1.
      Using Cpanel or your FTP, find on your server these two folders:
      • ..\libraries\gantry\*
      • ..\plugins\system\gantry\*
      Delete these two "gantry" folders, which will also delete all the sub-folders and files.

      2.
      Open your PhpMyAdmin and export a copy of your DB - just in case :oops:
      Then SEARCH for the word "gantry":

      4.
      Scan down the results till you find the table "your-DB-prefix_extensions"

      Cilck on the BROWSE button

      5.
      1. The table will appear in your window view and at the bottom
        click the "CHECK ALL" button
      2. This image is hidden for guests.

        Then click the "DELETE" button

      6.
      Then in the table list on the left, assuming # = your DB prefix, find the table called "#_template_styles"
      Before we go back into the Admin we want to make sure our default template doesn't require Gantry.
      So look down the HOME column (1) and find your Gantry-based Rockettheme template, in this example rt_anacron (2) which is set to "1" indicating the default template. Set this to "0"
      Then choose a Joomla template, for J25 -> atomic, beez_20 or beez5 and for J3 -> protostar or beez3, and set this to "1" (3)

      Now you are back to a state that has no Gantry on your server. You can try manually updating (Admin -> Extend -> Extension Manager -> Install -> Upload Package File) using the latest version of Gantry

      If you still have issues then post in relevant template or Gantry forum.
