    Download [] and extract (unzip) the extension’s contents on you computer. Navigate inside the extracted folder.

  4. Clear the cache

    In the store admin panel, go to System > Cache Management and press Flush Magento Cache button.(see Fig 1.2)

    Logout & Login back into the shop admin panel to refresh admin permissions that allow access to the new installed section.
  3. My site is broken.
    Our extension is significantly modularised and we have never yet seen it break any site when it’s fully uploaded and compilation is off. If your site does break, try reverting from a backup and contact us for support through


Most of the times, you don’t really have to completely remove the extension, you could just disable it from: app/etc/modules/Joovii_Sendleapi.xml

If you do want to completely remove this extension, open a shell console to your server and run shell/jooviisendle_uninstall script. This script will attempt to remove all extension files and also cleanup your database. Alternatively, you could manually remove all files from your server, by following the archive structure to find out where files are located on your store.
