Uninstalling Jira applications from Linux
This page describes the procedure for uninstalling Jira, which had been installed using the Linux installer.
If you wish to re-install Jira in "unattended mode", do not uninstall your previous installation of Jira just yet. See Using the silent installation feature for more information.
To uninstall Jira from Linux:
- Open a Linux console.
- Change directory (
cd) to your Jira installation directory. For example:
- Execute the command
uninstall. This command must be executed as the same user account that was used to install Jira with the Linux installer.
- Follow the prompts to uninstall Jira from your computer.
- All files within the Jira installation directory will be deleted (with the exception of the Tomcat log folder located in the Jira installation directory).
- The uninstaller will NOT delete:
- The Jira database
- The Jira home directory
- Log files that were generated while Jira was running
- The uninstaller can be made to operate in unattended mode by specifying the -q option — i.e. uninstall -q
