Php – How to disable and uninstall a Drupal module programmatically

drupal, drupal-7, drupal-modules, php

I want to be able to disable and then uninstall a module programmatically on my local environment and then easily push that code to prod so everything gets updated.

I'm guessing it's something with the hook_update_N. But not sure where to start.

Best Solution

Think I found the answer! Within the modules .install file, I added this code:

/** * Disable and uninstall the module. */function MODULE_update_7200() {  if( module_exists('MODULE')) {    module_disable(array('MODULE'));    drupal_uninstall_modules(array('MODULE'));  }}

The number in the function should reflect your drupal install. See how to number them here: http://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/modules%21system%21system.api.php/function/hook_update_N/7
