removing module without removing data (v7)

on 6/4/13, 7:17 AM 1,210 views


I've a custom module which add new field in some table. In V7, when I remove the installed module, the field is also remove from database.

For some reason (module rename, merge in another module), I want to uninstall the origin module without removing field from database.

How can I do that ?

You can backup the data and remove the module and restore the data again. I think it's the only way.
