Manually Uninstalling CloudShark


The CloudShark installation process installs a number of packages on the CentOS or Red Hat Operating System required to run CloudShark. It also creates a user named cloudshark to run the CloudShark software.

To manually uninstall all of these packages and the created user run the following commands as root:

[root@cloudshark ~]# service cloudshark stop
[root@cloudshark ~]# yum -y erase cloudshark-*
[root@cloudshark ~]# userdel -r cloudshark
[root@cloudshark ~]# yum -y erase nginx

There are also two directories that are created as part of the CloudShark installation process. To remove this run the following commands as root:

[root@cloudshark ~]# rm -rf /var/www/cloudshark/
[root@cloudshark ~]# rm -rf /usr/cloudshark/

After running these commands CloudShark will be uninstalled from the system.
