Uninstalling Media Management

To uninstall Media Management, you need to use the Module Management Tool (MMT) and reinstate certain files.
  1. Stop the Alfresco server.
  2. Use the topic, Uninstall an AMP file, to uninstall the module.
  3. In step 5 and step 7 of the Media Management installation, you kept a copy of a number of files and tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war<numbers>.bak.
    1. If you have made no changes that will affect alfresco.war, rename tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war<numbers>.bak to alfresco.war and copy it over to your tomcat/webapps directory.
    2. Alternatively, copy only the files that were overwritten by the Media Management installation:

      • /WEB-INF/lib/gytheio-commons-x.x.jar
      • /WEB-INF/lib/gytheio-health-commons-x.x.jar
      • /WEB-INF/lib/gytheio-messaging-camel-x.x.jar
      • /WEB-INF/lib/gytheio-messaging-commons-x.x.jar
      • /WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/templates/webscripts/org/alfresco/repository/comments/comment.lib.ftl
      • /WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/templates/webscripts/org/alfresco/repository/comments/comment.put.json.js
      • /WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/templates/webscripts/org/alfresco/repository/publishing/authform.get.html.ftl
      where x.x is the current version number.
  4. If you have used a Media Management content model like IPTC or PBCore, you must clean out your database before restarting Alfresco. See Step 8 of Deleting a content model for more information.
  5. Restart the Alfresco server.
