Turning off Magento Extension

Each Magento extension has its own xml configuration located on the app/etc/modules folder when you installed in magento. This xml includes active and codePool element which tells us that either the extension is active or not and codePool denote the location where the extension can be found. Codepool value is usually either community or local.

Maybe you already know that you have the option to disable the extension output on magento configuration yet you must be careful since it only disable extension outputs and not the whole extension. So, to fully disable a specific extension without removing it from your magento installation, you can simply do the following.

You want to disable the Reward point extension.

1. First, go to app/etc/modules folder and look for RewardPoints.xml file. Open it in your favorite editor.

Xml code should look like this:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
2. Then, set the active element value to false.
3. Save the file and clear your cache.
