...assuming we're meeting this month, I have some questions that I would love some help with. I have a site I built a while ago http://www.gibsonpewter.com/ that has a Drupal Commerce shopping cart enabled. However, the model was a real hack, as the owner never wanted to have credit card orders... It was just built to allow users to organize an order.
Anyway, maintaining it using that model has been a headache ever since, and we've agreed to disable the cart and revert to the old model of a simpler brochure site (users will call in to order, as before).
Problem is, I'm having issues disabling the Commerce stuff. Of 33 modules that had been enabled (yes... 33!!!), I've gone through and disabled all but 6. Obviously I have to disable them in order dictated by dependencies, but now when I try to disable the PRODUCT module, I get a fatal error and the whole thing craps out.
If anyone has any experience in dealing with this, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, I'd like to discuss the option of just maintaining the site with those 6 modules left enabled (the cart and any visible indication of an eCommerce site are gone with the modules already disabled).
Would leaving those things active but unused in the database expose the site to issues down the road? Does it invite future incompatibilities or vulnerabilities to hacks? I'm hoping not to have to rebuild this thing from scratch, but I'm pretty stuck right now.
