Purpose

The purpose of this article is to clarify how to clear data from Bitbucket Server (formerly known as Stash) in order to reconfigure the instance from scratch.

Solution

  1. Log into the instance with an Administrator, then go to Support > Atlassian Support Tools, click the System Information tab and determine:
    1. Which directory is being used as Home Directory
    2. The database that the instance is connected to
  2. Shutdown the instance
  3. Delete the contents of the Home Directory (or move it elsewhere)
  4. Drop the database being used by that instance (you can create a database dump before), then recreate it.
  5. After doing these steps above, the next time you try to start that instance you will go through its Setup Wizard again.
