How To Uninstall the Magento 2 Extension

Several our extensions use the uninstall script. For this, connect to the server via SSH and perform these steps:

1) Navigate to the root Magento folder and perform the command:

    php bin/magento module:uninstall MageWorx_ModuleName

How to identify the name of the module?

The names of the extensions can taken from the names of the folders located in /app/code/Mageworx/ in the module's folder. Bear in mind that several folders can be seen there, in this case you need to list all of them without commas, like php bin/magento module:enable MageWorx_SeoAll MageWorx_SeoBase MageWorx_SeoXTemplates...etc. You do not need to include the meta package in this link. The meta package has the ...Meta word in the name like MageWorx_OrderManagementMeta. You do not need to add the extensions that were already installed.

2) If you've used the composer to install the extension, remove the extension Meta Package:

composer remove mageworx/module-modulenamemeta

3) Run the setup:upgrade command, then clear the cache and generated folders

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
rm -rf var/cache var/generation var/di var/page_cache generated/*

4) Run the reindex process to update your indexers

php bin/magento indexer:reindex
