How to Uninstall Fantastico from WHM / cPanel Server

Log into your server via SSH as root and execute the following:

rm -rf /var/netenberg/fantastico_de_luxe/
rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/fantastico/
rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/fantastico*
rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/*/fantastico
rm -f /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x/cells/fantastico.html
rm -f /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x/cells/cpanelplugin_Fantastico_De_Luxe.html
rm -f /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/addon_fantastico.cgi

The first line, /var/netenberg/ should be replaced with whatever directory you installed the Fantastico master files ( /home/netenberg/ )

Finally, remove the Fantastico update cron job from the root cron.This is what the cron job looks like:

1 1 * * * cd /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/fantastico/scripts/ ; /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1

Then go to WHM->Packages->Feature Manager and remove the fantastico check box
