Webmin Boot services not needed - How Remove Them ?

Hi
I am running Ubuntu server 8.04 LTS no GUI (All command line), the server has been running for about 3 years in which time I have installed & uninstalled progs as required.. I now have three items I need to uninstall/remove in the correct way of course.. Looking at my screenshot you will see the Bootup & SHutdown screen from my Webmin..

How do I get rid twonky stuff & the ftp service correctly..

Thanks

Since the twonky installation was done via shell script, it's highly unlikely that any package manager was involved. In that case, there is no generally "correct" way of uninstalling.
Check whether twonkymedia also offer an uninstallation script, either on their product site or in the package you downloaded.

In case they don't, you will have to manually uninstall.  Open the "twonkymedia-i386-glibc-2.2.5-6.0.28.sh" script in a text editor. Reading the script will let you know which files have been installed and where they went. Then remove them one by one, afterwards remove the installation folder and installation script.

I'd suggest to not completely remove the FTP server, only disable it.
FTP is one of the most essential services, you may need it again sooner or later. Once disabled, it will not cost you any resources, and should you need it again you can re-enable it with the click of a button.

So place a checkmark near 'vsftpd' and then click "Disable now and on boot".


The twonky stuff is already disabled, hence does not require resources. If you wish to completely get rid of it, depending on the way you installed it you ought to reverse that installation process.
This is to say: If you installed twonky on the command line via "apt-get", you need to invoke
sudo apt-get remove twonky*

If you installed it via Webmin under "Software packages", go there again and remove the twonky package.

Thanks for this..The twonky one was a bit different, not installed via apt OR software packages the file name was twonkymedia-i386-glibc-2.2.5-6.0.28.sh
Its the first time I have installed anything in this way hence the reason I am at a loss on how to uninstall correctly!

Thank you
