The /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/uninstall_plugin script uninstalls a cPanel plugin. When you run this script, it uses the archive file’s install.json file to remove the plugin from the dynamicui.conf file. The cPanel Home interface uses the dynamicui.conf file to display icons and groups.

To install a script, use the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/install_plugin script.


If the plugin installation file does not contain a install.json file, the uninstall process will fail.

Run the script

To run this script on the command line, use the following format:

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/uninstall_plugin /filepath [options]


Use the following options with this script:

  • .tar.gz
  • .bzip2
  • .zip
  • An uncompressed directory.
