This page describes the procedure for uninstalling Confluence, which had been installed using the Linux Installer.

To uninstall Confluence from Linux:

  1. Open a Linux console.
  2. Change directory (cd) to your Confluence installation directory.
  3. Execute the command uninstall. This command must be executed as the same user account that was used to install Confluence with the Linux Installer.
  4. Follow the prompts to uninstall Confluence from your computer.

(info) Please note:

  • The uninstaller will not delete the Confluence Home Directory.
  • All log files that were generated while Confluence was running will not be deleted.
  • All files within the Confluence Installation Directory will be deleted (with the exception of the Tomcat log folder located in the Confluence Installation Directory).
  • The uninstaller can be made to operate in unattended mode by specifying the -q option — i.e. uninstall -q
  • If you wish to re-install Confluence in 'unattended mode', do not uninstall your previous installation of Confluence just yet. See Using the Silent Installation Feature for more information.
