Does anyone know the proper uninstall process to uninstall the Linux/Unix version of CF 9? Documentation says to go to cf_root/uninstall and execute ./uninstall.sh.
This is incorrect. There is no "./unistall.sh" script in the uninstall directory. There is a "uninstall" (no .sh) script in the uninstall directory, but looking at it it looks like a Java uninstall, not a ColdFusion uninstall.
Does anyone know the proper way to uninstall CF 9 (Linux 64 flavor)?
Thank you for your response. Might I impose on you 1 more time?
We installed CF 9 Enterprise Linux 64. It did not run clean, (the Apache Connector did not complete properly because we were missing the httpd-devl package) and when we tried to uninstall CF9, it rendered the server unusable. This is the response from our Senior Linux Admin after we ran the CF 9 uninstall by using:
cd /opt/coldfusion9/uninstall (/opt/coldfusion9 is our cf_root directory)
“After failing to even be able to login to the server I pulled it up in rescue mode to see what might be done for it. I found something I had never seen before. The /bin directory had been symlinked over to the /sbin directory. Due to this everything in /bin was lost (most importantly shells). Due to this nothing was able to be logged in. I tried some recovery options but none of them were adequate for this. I am now doing a full restore from backup.”
Do you have any idea what might be causing this? This is the 4th occurance of this on both CF 8 and CF 9.
Thanks for your time and trouble.
This exact issue has come up in the alpha and beta testing of ColdFusion server (multiple versions) on Linux. The issue described in the forum is exactly what I've heard others say and had happen once on a Centos VM during the betas. However, I have not seen it happen outside of the beta's.
I am confident in saying this is fixed. I recently ran the uninstall on a production ColdFusion 9.0.1 server for the purpose of fixing a broken installation. The uninstall program worked perfectly on Centos 6.3.
