Hello, I need to uninstall K2 from a website but I can't find instructions on what to install and which order. These are the extensions the site is listing:
  • Josetta - K2 Categories
    Josetta - K2 Items
    K2 Administrator Component
    K2 Comments
    K2 Content
    K2 Quick Icons (admin)
    K2 Stats (admin)
    K2 Tools
    K2 User
    K2 Users
    Search - K2
    Smart Search - K2
    System - K2
    User - K2

Please let me know what to uninstall and in which order.

Thank you,

Uninstall "K2 Administrator Component" (the backend component) and it will trigger K2's uninstaller for everything else. Keep in mind that this action will also delete all K2 tables in your Joomla site's database. If you need the data there, you should backup your database first.

Hi Fotis, thanks for your reply! Would anything other than your K2 component be using K2 tables? I don't need to retain any K2 information. The component was installed because my client was going to do a blog, but they never didn't. I am uninstalling K2 to keep only what the site is actively using.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Only other K2-specific extensions. But if you don't use K2 anyway, I doubt there's anything else to worry about. Get a database backup just in case and proceed to the uninstallation process.

As a sidenote, you may need to remove the "Josetta" plugins manually as they are no longer part of the last 2-3 versions of K2 so they are not included in K2's installer/uninstaller.
