I recently tried installing the Gecko.Uploadify package into my works horribly outdated Umbraco installation (4.11.9).
Immediately after installing the package I received the error:
This happens everytime i try to use the backoffice, now my question is, how can i get rid of the package and save my installation again.
Can I just manually remove the package - or do i have to make some changes to the umbraco.global file.
Really hope you guys can help me out.
If you have version control you can see what files have been added and just remove those. I don't think it makes any changes to the database. Why do you want to use this package on Umbraco 4.11? Since Umbraco 4.9 it has it's own multiple file uploader.
Thanks for your swift reply.
We have a pretty weird setup at the office (i'm newly employed) - and the reason we are using and old version of Umbraco is because of some custom tool macros, which we're developed by external developers, prior to my employment.
The things is, they (the external developers) host everything and i only have limited access to the ftp-server - so when i ran into this error, i naturely contacted them - to hear if anything could be changed from their end. They replied that the only solution, was to "reinstall" the Umbraco installation on their end, which seems a bit excessive. So i have no option myself to use a tool like Github, because 95% of my work is done in the backoffice, And i simply have no control over most of the files hosted on the server (this is something i am working hard to change).
I could try to contact the external developers again and see if they have any kind of version control.
But if this does not succeed, is there any other way i can do this - i presume simply removing the package from the host server, won't do the trick?
ps: The answer from the external developers was "The media files have been corrupted".
In your website go to /App_Data/packages/installed/installedPackages.config. In the xml you can see which packages are installed and what files are added per package. Look for the Gecko Uploadify package and see which files it added. Remove those files from the host server should be enough to uninstall the package.
