(Some) Plugins Do Not Uninstall


Recommended Posts



I'm documenting this here, as it keeps cropping up, typically in scenarios where we're asking users to uninstall plugins as part of troubleshooting.

This inevitably ends up in a short discussion along the lines of "you didn't uninstall it", "yes I did", "you didn't restart the server", "yes I did", etc.

The same behaviour is repeatable on current stable (3.0.8500) and beta (3.1.211), all tests were run in a Mono based environment.

I tested with Auto Box Sets, Cover Art and Trailers, Auto Box Sets and Cover Art uninstalled correctly.

The following logs are for the Trailers plugin, which does not uninstall:-

server-63614143052.txt : Server started, Trailers plugin installed, server stopped.

server-63614143506.txt : Server started, Trailers plugin uninstalled, server stopped.

server-63614143621.txt : Server started, Trailers plugin still present.

In case it's relevant, whilst working through the tests, I noticed that with the Trailers plugin the notification to restart is received but the need to restart is not displayed on the dashboard as it it with the others.
