    postgresql sucks no one is using it so we need to remove it

    I did:
    rpm -qa | grep postgres

    rpm -e whatever_is_returned_by_the_above_command

    Tried to disable it from WHM service manager.

    But now it appears is "Service Status" as red icon.

    How to remove it completely ?

    Removing Postgresql from Service Status on CPanel WHM

    I had a similar problem after removing postgresql. I found the solution here:
    TailWatch < AllDocumentation/AutomationIntegration < TWiki

    One of the most common issues occurs when a service is not monitored or has been disabled and is still listed on the service status page as offline. To fix this error, you may need to remove and/or edit a few files. For the purposes of this tutorial, assume that the service is clamd.

    Remember: In the example below, clamd can be replaced with any other service.

    Remove the run file:
    rm -f /var/run/chkservd/clamd

    Remove the chkservd restart file:
    rm -f /etc/chkserv.d/clamd

    Edit the chkservd configuration file with your preferred text editor. You may need to remove the line for clamd. The chkservd configuration file can be found at:

    Restart chkservd:

    After you have made the necessary changes, simply return to the Service Manager interface and click Save at the bottom without making any changes.
