Quote from: Kat on January 08, 2010, 05:22:57 PMIn your Packages directory, you'll find another directory named "Backups". In there, look for an archive named something like "2009-01-01_before_AEVA.tar.gz.Download that file, dearchive it and upload the contents, overwriting what's there, now.Voila! Mod removed.

Quote from: Kill Em All on January 08, 2010, 09:12:38 PMYou will need to download a program to unzip it, as far as I know, the stock Windows extraction tool doesn't do .tar or .gz. I suggest downloading 7-Zip. I think its the best extraction tool.http://www.7-zip.org/
Quote from: Kat on January 09, 2010, 05:47:21 AMThere are two archives, really, Oldcrow. First, you have to dearchive the gz file, then the resulting tar file. It's a Linux thing. If you really can't figure it, PM me your ftp login details, including the ftp address for your site, and I'll sort you out, if you like.Be aware of this, though: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=228940.0

There's still a load of stuff about AEVA in your temp directory and the backup only contains index.php.This could involve a bit of hard work.You didn't do the sensible thing and backup, before you installed the mod, did you?
Quote from: Kat on January 11, 2010, 12:32:41 PMRight...You'll be happy to know that you have a forum!Looks like subs.php got screwed, somehow.Backup everything, before you do much else.Use the forum for a while and see if anything seems weird.If much else pops up, it might be best to get the SMF install package and upload everything, again, EXCEPT Settings.phpYou really don't want to overwrite that, trust me. That'll mean that most of your mods, if not all, won't work, so you'll have to reinstall them.I know it's a pain, but back things up, before you install a mod. It really IS the best way.
Quote from: Kat on January 11, 2010, 03:53:20 PMOK. Files replaced.I've made a post in the admin board, on your site.Got it ThanksEverything seems OK, to me, now.Yes running good now.I notice that you have quite a few themes. You realise, do you, that most mods will require manual editing, to get them to work with most custom themes?Themes have been removed.I also noticed a few files were missing. I saw "Fantastico". That could be why.CorrectAlso, you might want to get into FTP, mate. Working on a website is SOOOOOOOOO much easier, that way. Will do my best to learn the FTP, its confusing to me..Next thing to do, is sort out the mods. Some might still work OK, but I doubt many will, I'm afraid.I have removed them all, reinstalled one by one. Ones that errored I deleted.
