How to completely disable PostgreSQL

    Hello, To disable PostgreSQL, you'd need to take the following steps: 1. Remove the PostgreSQL RPMs (not the cpanel-postgresql RPMS). EX:
    yum remove postgresql rpm -e --nodeps postgresql-libs-9.2.23-3.el7_4.x86_64
    2. Select "PostgreSQL" in the "Disabled" feature list via "WHM >> Feature Manager". I completed these steps on a test system and the PostgreSQL options were no longer visible. Additionally, the service was automatically removed. Thank you.

    Excelent! Worked like a charm. Thank you very much! PS: You should consider adding this information to the docs ;)

    As a footnote, I also disabled the icon of phpPgAdmin in the "Disabled" feature. Is there any possibility to uninstall it as well? or won't it do any hurt?

    Hello, The feature name itself isn't automatically removed, but there's no harm in leaving it enabled. As far as documentation, I recommend voting and adding feedback to the following feature request instead, as removing system RPMs (the install script simply installs PostgreSQL from the OS repos) isn't something we'd typically document: Improved PostgreSQL support If support for PostgreSQL were to be improved, the ability to install or uninstall it would be offered directly from WHM. Thank you.
