We have installed Postgresql as a non-root user. Now we wish to uninstall. The CA APM Installation and Upgrade Guide says to run the command "uninstall-postgresql", but the file is not found on our system.
If you originally installed Postgresql as a root user, the file "uninstall-postgresql" will exist under the home directory of Postgresql, and can be used to perform the uninstall.
If you installed Postgresql as a non-root user this file will not exist.
To uninstall Postgresql originally installed by a non-root user:
Execute the following commands one by one from the console:
<non_root_user_directory_absolute_path>/opt/database/bin/pg_ctl -D <non_root_user_directory_absolute_path>/opt/database/data stop
Change directory to:
and execute the following command:
rm -rf bin doc installer pgAdmin3 scripts stackbuilder include lib postgresql-8.4.5 share
This will perform un-installation using the same approach as "uninstall-postgres".
