Uninstalling SpeedBlog

Depending on how you’ve configured, before you uninstall SpeedBlog from the Module Definitions section of the host, ensure that the following steps are taken. Failure to do so may result in a broken DNN Installation.

Visit the Portal Settings

Visit the Portal Settings


Remove Checkboxes for Pingbacks (Send as well as Receive)

Disable Pingbacks

Save the settings. Depending on your other SpeedBlog settings, you may have to revisit this page.

Remove Provider Settings

Remove RSS and Sitemap Providers

Remove (Disable) the RSS and Sitemap Providers. When you’re correctly done, you should see the Provider Settings as above.

Uninstall the module.

Always make a copy of your web.config file before you install/uninstall a product. If you have performed the above procedures correctly, you can now go to the Module Definitions page and remove all SpeedBlog modules just like another or DNN Module.

    i wanted to reset and start over with SpeedBlog. I did the simple steps listed above. I backed up my web.config and my database. The steps are easy, and done carefully. My site died. Feedback: allow your uninstall to remove all the extraneous modules you install (i always uninstall manually from the least important to the most important, so perhaps your main module removes all the others and i missed this step).. but the uninstalls were ok.

    The site just died. I found two add verb lines in the web.config pointing to SpeedBlog and removed them. To no avail. Not very happy at the moment. My hosting platform seems to be not permitting my CustomErrors="Off" setting to function so i cannot tell what is wrong..

    Any clues would be helpful. Do you folks have weekend support? drew..

      Hello Drew

      Please get in touch with support [at] dnnspeedblog.com and someone would be able to assist you. The only reason a site would die is if there is a reference to SpeedBlog.dll somewhere in your web.config. You can use SpeedBlog settings to remove from a) Pingbacks, b) RSS Providers, c) Text Editor Providers.

      If you've already uninstalled SpeedBlog, search for SpeedBlog in your web.config and remove all lines that have a reference to SpeedBlog.

        thanks.. as mentioned, i had gone into web.config and removed all refs to speedblog. Uploaded the config ... a few times. Two parameters came into play: i had somehow set my ftp tool to rename an uploading file rather than overwriting it (boooo) and my techs had disabled remote viewing of the errors, so this all compounded for some confusion. Once i figured out these items, i soon realized i had activated two lines for CustomErrors, which is a no-no! All is good now and i am re-installing SB. thanks!

        ps: the hint about NOT naming your module instance on first install is crucial to help new users. That should be predominantly displayed somewhere.. winking
