Hi guys,
I have a need to uninstall vbet, I uninstalled via admincp and vbet is gone, however if I try to delete vbet files off my server (i'm trying to get my server back to standard files only before reinstalling just what I need) it kills my forum!!? here's the error I get if I try to remove files AFTER uninstalling via admincp:

Warning: require(/home/thecodec/public_html/forumz/includes/vbenterprisetranslator_functions_redirect.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/thecodec/public_html/forumz/includes/init.php(304) : eval()'d code on line 135

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/thecodec/public_html/forumz/includes/vbenterprisetranslator_functions_redirect.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/thecodec/public_html/forumz/includes/init.php(304) : eval()'d code on line 135

I have removed all vbet rules from .htaccess.

Any ideas how to cure this?

This looks like not removing some plugin vBET or not removing integration vBET with some plugin. Do you have vBSEO? Try turning off all the hooks/plugins (more info (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum/vbulletin-3-8/vbulletin-3-8-questions-problems-and-troubleshooting/vbulletin-quick-tips-and-customizations/201532-disable-the-plugin-hook-system-globally)).

I have no option but to turn off all plugins, I had vbseo but I've tried getting rid of it!, when I try uninstalling vbet I get all sorts of issues, it's driving me nuts!

Before uninstalling vBET must remove its integration with vBSEO. Before uninstalling vBET also try to disable all hooks in config.php (more info (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum/vbulletin-3-8/vbulletin-3-8-questions-problems-and-troubleshooting/vbulletin-quick-tips-and-customizations/201532-disable-the-plugin-hook-system-globally)).

I'll give it another go, VBSEO has been uninstalled so i don't know what integration you mean? VBSEO rules have been removed from .htaccess. where else should i be looking?

If you have removed vBSEO then you also removed integration vBSEO with vBET.
Please send me a PM access details to Admin CP and FTP. I will check what is going on there :)

Before uninstalling vBET you must remove all of its integration. I found your integration in modules/recentthreads.php in lines 255-260. If you have done some other integration with vBET then delete them.

Uninstalled vbet then started to remove vbet files and got this:
Warning: require([path]/includes/vbenterprisetranslator_functions_redirect.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/init.php(304) : eval()'d code on line 135

I had to reinstall the files (but not the product) in order to use my forums

Despite the removal of vBET still works. Your vB also launches plugins disabled. This problem also occurs in other plugins, so it is not a problem of vBET. Do you have a caching plugin? If so, clear the cache. vB has a duty to remove plugins and apparently did it because in AdminCP has no plugins, but they are in the cache database because they are further loaded.

The issue was with datastore/datastore_cache.php for some reason it became unwritable, so I made it writable and then uninstalled fine!

I am glad that you solved the issue.
