To remove a module from Drupal, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Drupal site as an administrator.
  2. Go to the "Extend" page by clicking on the "Extend" link in the main menu, or by going to http://yoursite.com/admin/modules.
  3. Find the module that you want to remove in the list of installed modules.
  4. Click the "Uninstall" button next to the module.
  5. In the confirmation dialog that appears, click "Uninstall" to confirm that you want to remove the module.
  6. The module will be uninstalled and disabled, and you will be redirected back to the "Extend" page.


If you want to completely remove the module from your site, you will also need to delete the module files from your server. To do this, you will need to access your server via FTP or SSH and navigate to the /modules directory. Locate the folder for the module that you want to delete, and delete it from the server.


It is important to note that uninstalling a module may have unintended consequences, such as breaking certain features or functionality on your site. It is always a good idea to make a backup of your site before uninstalling any modules.

It is also worth mentioning that some modules may have dependencies and removing them may result in errors or broken functionalities on your site. Therefore, it is advisable to thoroughly review the module and its dependencies before uninstalling it. Additionally, be sure to double-check that the module you are removing is not a core module that is necessary for the proper functioning of your Drupal site.
