I researched about this and even asked my hosting provider, but they didn't give me an answer.

I am paying for a Softaculous license in a VPS.

I used it some time ago to install WordPress and NextCloud.

But I disabled the auto-update for both since I want to do that manually.

I want to remove Softaculous, because I am not using it anymore, but I wonder if that will have any effect on the already installed apps.

My hosting provider tells me to "just do it and see what happens", but I don't think this is the cleanest way to do something.


If you follow instructions given in the official documentation, uninstalling Softaculous is only deleting its own files, you do not delete installed apps.
