How to remove a database marked as "Used by an installed web app"?

    I dont believe this to be completely true, I will give my example. I host some of my sites with GoDaddy and lets say I install a web app like Moodle for instance. As you pointed out Moodle automatically installed a database. I can there go to applications uninstall Moodle and the database does not get removed.

    This is a little annoying as When I go to Plesk, Databases the database in question is greyed out and can not be uninstalled the same way. I will at some point try  it the other way around and uninstall the database before trying to uninstall the application. For now I still have the small problem of removing the databases. I found this thread

    Unfortunately it did not help as step 3 suggests "Select psa" I dont see that as an option.

    Indeed, Plesk binds database to web application only for specific web applications installed via APS catalog.
    As for the issue, assuming you are using Windows Server, I suggest following CLI way from the aforementioned article.
