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:

  1. Open a Linux console.
  2. Change directory (cd) to your Jira installation directory. For example:
    cd /opt/atlassian/jira/
  3. Execute the command uninstall. This command must be executed as the same user account that was used to install Jira with the Linux installer.
  4. Follow the prompts to uninstall Jira from your computer.

Note that:

  • 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
