Question

How to correctly uninstall DrWeb antivirus?

Answer

It is possible to uninstall Dr.Web with Plesk autoinstaller:

# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller

Or using GUI in Plesk Control Panel->Tools and Settings->Updates and Upgrades.

If uninstallation using autoinstaller is not possible, use the following instruction:

Log in to the server under root and do the following:

  1. Remove DrWeb antivirus packages:

For Red Hat/CentOS

    # rpm -e drweb-updater drweb-libs drweb-bases psa-drweb-configurator drweb-common  drweb-libs32 drweb-daemon --nodeps
  1. Go to Tools & Settings > Server Components and update list of server components to detect that Dr.Web has been removed.

  2. Run forced update of mail server configuration:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk --without-spam
  3. Remove the cron entry remaining after the uninstallation:

    rm -rf /var/spool/cron/drweb
    rm -rf /etc/cron.daily/drweb-update
  4. Disable monitoring of the service by Watchdog:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/modules/watchdog/wd --unmonit-service=drweb

The mailboxes will not be affected by the above actions.
