Completely uninstall XAMPP 1.8.0 [Solved]

Postby Drupal » 14. October 2012 18:57

Hello,

I'm looking for a way to completely uninstall XAMPP 1.8.0 on Ubuntu Server LTS 12.04.1.

The only information I can find on this website is to run the following commands:

#/opt/lampp/lampp stop
#rm -rf /opt/lampp

But I still noticed some files which are related to XAMPP on different locations;
/etc/init.d/lampp
/etc/rc2.d/S20lampp
/etc/rc6.d/K20lampp
/usr/share/doc/xampp/changelog.gz

My questions:
1. Is it safe to remove these files?
2. How do I find all other files? The find command doesn't bring up the /etc/rc*.d files; who knows how many other files there are still left..

/etc/init.d/lampp
/etc/rc2.d/S20lampp
/etc/rc6.d/K20lampp
/usr/share/doc/xampp/changelog.gz


Those entries were not created by the XAMPP/lampp installation So - therefore - I am guessing 'you' did not install lampp, and thus it becomes quite difficult to say what to look for and where to look for it. I'd see if there are any folders under /home that contain folders with what appears to be code in them on the presumption someone may have created a vhost or Alias. Normally, everything lampp needs or does is under the /opt/lampp folder,

You could use find and grep, but I don't think you will find anything else. Those entries at the top would appear to be commands to auto-start lampp.

Good Luck

My mistake and you're right, I didn't install it myself. By removing /etc/init.d/lampp and /usr/share/doc/xampp/changelog.gz the other entries also disappeared. Thank you for your quick and thorough reply! :)
