    Causes 503 errors in Umbraco 6

    Installed on version 6 of Umbraco and crashed the system causing 503 error. Crashes repeatedly just on logging in to Umbraco - can't even get to Packages section to uninstall it :(

    Any clues on how to uninstall it manually?

    I think your issues are caused by permission settings. I can run the package on a V6 site and you would have been able to uninstall when the permissions are correct. Check this document for permissions

    But if you want to uninstall manually, remove:

    • bin/ContentMaintenanceDashboard.dll
    • usercontrols/ContentMaintenanceDashboard.ascx
    • Remove the following snippet from /config/dashboard.config file

     <section alias="Content Maintenance">
        <tab caption="Content Maintenance">

    Hope this helps,

    Actually I think the 503 problems are caused by something else in Umbraco 6 - I've reported it as a bug there - since I've experienced it without anything to do with the ContentMaintenance Dashboard. So apologies for wrongly reporting it here. (I did delete the post but some how it managed to resurrect itself!)

    The uninstall problem is nothing to do with permissions but to do with the 503 bug which prevented me from even running the site (let alone getting into the backend).

    FYI having sorted the 503 errors I did give the CMD a try but it came up with errors (normal pop-up errors) when trying to bulk move nodes (which was my main reason for installing it) so I ended up uninstalling (the normal way) anyway.
