Uninstalling NuoDB on Linux

The process used to uninstall NuoDB differs depending on which package (RPM, DEB, or TAR) you used to install.

Uninstalling a NuoDB RPM Package

Use the RedHat Package Manager (rpm) to uninstall the NuoDB RPM package:

sudo rpm -e nuodb

Uninstalling a NuoDB DEB Package

Use the Debian Package Utility (dpkg) to uninstall the NuoDB DEB package. You may choose a simple uninstall, which removes the package but preserves the configuration files:

sudo dpkg -r nuodb

or you may choose a "purge" uninstall, which removes the package and also deletes all configuration files:

sudo dpkg -P nuodb

Uninstalling a NuoDB TAR Package

The NuoDB TAR package requires no special commands for uninstall: you simply delete the software. Be sure that all NuoDB processes are stopped beforehand:

$NUODB_HOME/etc/nuoengine stop
rm -rf $NUODB_HOME
The default location for configuration and log files is within the installation directory for TAR packages. The above rm operation will also delete these files.
