One of the servers I use to host email and a few small websites for friend and family comes with Installatron installed by default. It is a way to easily install web applications and keep them up to date automatically.

It is a paid service, but it is free for one domain. It can be confusing for some users on the server since the button is in the controlpanel.

I decided to remove Installatron from the machine. First remove the plugin from Directadmin (or other) controlpanel. Then execute the following commands. Remove the RPM (if CentOS):

rpm -e installatron-plugin-directadmin 

Remove all the files:

rm -rf /usr/local/directadmin/plugins/installatron 
rm -rf /usr/local/installatron 
rm -rf /var/installatron 
rm -rf /etc/cron.d/installatron 
rm -rf /home/*/.installatron

That's it. Installatron has been removed
