I deleted a search plugin by mistake, any chance getting it back?

Hello. I tried an advanced search plugin that I did not like and went to uninstall it.
Apparently, I uninstalled something I did not want to instead.
The image provided shows what the default search used to look like.

Because of the uninstalled "plugin" or module I am now getting this error when I try to access the search via menu. ( Instead of the search form as shown in the picture ),

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare plgsearchmenusareas() (previously declared in /home2/xxxxx/public_html/xxxx.com/plugins/search/menusearch.php:49) in /home2/xxxxx/public_html/xxxcom/plugins/search/bot_menusearch.php on line 60



If this is a native search plugin or even if it is not, would anyone know what I would need to reinstall it.


I learned my lesson about uninstalling for certain!

Thanks in advance.

Looking at the code and checking my joomla 1.5 install this doesnt look like the default search plugin.

It looks liek the php file used by AdvancedSearch

JUst go to extensions.joomla.org and redownload it and install it again

Hi, colonelblue,

Try deleting plugins manually if there is any trashes left out.

Plugins files are located here
/plugins/content/
Check if that plugins folder is still there. Delete them if any.

you also need to look into your database for the table:  jos_plugins and remove related plugin data from jos_plugins

Hope this helps
cheers,
mekh

I tried all the above but something remained askew so I used akeeba to restore my latest backup.

Thank you.
