By following these simple steps, you can remove Astra from your Drupal 7 website.

  1. Login to the DrupalAdmin dashboard, navigate to the “Modules” section and scroll down to the bottom.
  2. In the other section, uncheck “Astra Security (Drupal)” and click on the save configuration button below to disable the module.
  3. Go to Uninstall Tab and check the box on the left of Astra Security (Drupal) and click “Uninstall“.
  4. Click “Uninstall” again when asked, “Would you like to continue with uninstalling the above?”
  5. You’ll get a dialogue saying the selected modules have been uninstalled.
  6. It is also recommended to clear the Drupal Performance Cache

However, if the module is still listed in the modules list you may have to finish the removal of the module by deleting the files on the server. You can do this via FTP, SSH, or your cPanel. You can do it, by following these simple steps:

  1. Go into the website root directory where all the folders are located.
  2. Once in the root folder, navigate to the /sites/all/modules’ folder. There you will see various folders for your installed modules.
  3. After you find the ‘astra_security_drupal’ folder, right-click on the folder and click the ‘Delete’ option to remove the files.
  4. In case of a confirmation popup, click on the Delete File(s) button to complete the deletion.
  5. After going back to your Drupal 7 admin modules area, you should now no longer see the Astra Security module.
