Uninstall Moodle Application in Mac OS X – Moodle removal steps from Mac OS X

Want to uninstall Moodle apps? Not able to find a way to uninstall Moodle completely from your Mac Machine? Is your Mac machine giving error after manually uninstalling Moodle application?

Uninstalling Moodle in mac is just a different approach than in Windows OS. Windows OS provides a option to uninstall application or application manufactures provides uninstaller with the application. But in Mac OS X there is nothing like uninstall utility. To uninstall the Moodle you simply need to drag & drop the Moodle application bundles to trash, that's it. STOP this is not the end there is more to properly uninstalling the Moodle from your machine.

Moodle Bundles – The Application Bundle

Drag & Drop leaves the associated files of Moodle application. Normally, it is thought that all the associated files of a application is saved in the one folder but it is not so. Moodle supported files & preference files are saved in other location than the Moodle Package folder. So you need to get all these files deleted manually. Deleting all the left overs of Moodle is not that easy, you need to find all the location where Moodle has saved the files. Some of the location where Moodle would have saved the files are ~/Library/Preferences/[] ~/Library/Application Support/[]
