Uninstall plugin that uses database?

I have yet to get a forum response from the author of the Version Control plugin, so I guess I’ll make the plea here.

I’m always trying to tidy up, weeding out unused things anywhere and everywhere. I haven’t had to revert to a previous version of a post, though, so it’d seem reasonable to want to uninstall this plugin and the database tables it uses, right?

I don’t know how to do that. Help?

  1. I’ve done this twice with StatTraq and Spam Karma. I’d assume that it would be the same with Version Control. If it is, just deactivate the plugin, login to your database via phpmyadmin, drop the table created by the plugin, and delete the plugin files. Good luck!
