Should I disable/remove unused modules?

Hi all,

If we are not using a bunch of the features in FreePBX, should I (or can I) disable the modules?


I disable all commercial modules that require a license and that I am not licensed for as I don’t want my dashboard cluttered with things I cannot use.

Have a nice day!


I think the answer is “Yes”, but only because the webpage poster won’t let you post just “Yes”.

I’ve disabled UCP from admin, then done a fwconsole restart:
now, no UCP icon is displayed on the http interface, but it still running in background.
