 Hi, i've been experiencing trouble installing akeeba backup on my joomla site. the site is on local serveur for now. I've been trying to uninstall it manually but it keeps on sending me warnings. Would you have a simple procedure to uninstall the component manually completely so I can try to reinstall it. I've been using Akkeba on many site and never experienced that before.

Thank you.
