In order to save memory, you can disable certain modules or services that you do not use for your website. The less modules and services load – the faster the startup times.
Use this procedure to manage modules in Sitefinity CMS. Using this section of the administration, you can install and uninstall Sitefinity CMS modules and also activate and deactivate them. For example, you can deactivate the News module or Sitefinity CMS Analytics, or you can completely uninstall the Events module.
You manage a module, on Modules & Services page.
To open the page, click Administration » Modules & Services.
A list of all Active, Inactive, and Not installed modules and services appears.
To activate a deactivated module, click its Actions link and then click Activate.
To install an uninstalled module, click its Actions link and then click Install.
To install a deleted module, use the Install a module button in the toolbar.
If you have multiple sites, when you deactivate, uninstall, or delete a module, the action applies to all of your sites and you will not be able to select this module for future sites.
IMPORTANT: We do not recommend deactivating the Scheduling module. By doing this, you will not be able to schedule content items and pages for publishing or unpublishing, but you will also loose many other system functions. Many of the others' modules functionality relays on the Scheduling module. This includes SiteSync, Email campaigns, Recycle bin, some libraries options, and others.
NOTE: You can also install any other module by installing the .dll using the Install a module button in the toolbar.
Enter a name and description for the module, and enter its type. For example, MyModuleProject.MyModule. Choose when to activate the module and click Save.
