Removing the Plesk SEO Toolkit and its 0% Completed

The new version of Plesk is out. Plesk Onyx 17.8.11 is out for early adopters, it is a fabulous thing - lots of great features. However, the experience is a little marred by the continual presence of the progress box bottom right for their SEO Toolkit - which is currently on version 1.0.0-17 and does not appear to be going anywhere with anything fast.

Furthermore, I cannot kill those tasks, and there does not appear to be a GUI way to remove the issue. While there appeared to have been a couple of articles on the Plesk site outlining the SEO Toolkit and the 0% Completed issue - those links lead straight to 404's so I am guessing the articles are pulled.

So - CLI appears to be the way to go.

This is how to remove the SEO Toolkit using the CLI - or for that matter - any of the other plesk extensions. Are you sitting comfortably? Good.

[root@thisoldthing ~]# /usr/local/psa/bin/extension -l

SO - the extension is called XOVI - I see you now.
I saw articles regarding other issues (Google Authenticator for example) saying the use of the -l  to list, and then the -u to uninstall - but no dice. I am guessing as it was already queued up to do things.
So that worked out a little like this alas... which looks promising but the extension is still there!
[root@thisoldthing~]# /usr/local/psa/bin/extension -u xovi
Killed
Which really is of no use to anyone.
A quick extension --help shows there is also a disable - so I made a b-line for that.
[root@thisoldthing ~]# /usr/local/psa/bin/extension --disable xovi
The extension's status was successfully updated.
Which is reassuring to see for sure, then moving directly to the main course of:
[root@thisoldthing ~]# /usr/local/psa/bin/extension -u xovi
The extension was successfully removed.
[root@thisoldthing ~]# /usr/local/psa/bin/extension -l

The application is now gone. Good times. Alas re-adding it steps straight back in with the "Site Audit is in progress for domain: blah.tld 0% completed." along with the stream of things that are not completed obscuring the bottom right side of my control panel.
I guess I will be leaving this off and trying it again another day. Ho hum.
Otherwise, SHINY NEW RELEASE AND LOTS OF FAB THINGS - well done Plesk people *hat tip*
