Using the Qube Installer Utility:

    Run the installer on the relevant machine, and choose "Uninstall Everything" when you get to the selection screen:

    Manual Uninstall

    First, stop the services on the machine you are going to uninstall from:


    Linux:        /sbin/service supervisor stop 
    OS X:        SystemStarter stop supervisor  
    Win (dialog):    Services Window->Supervisor->stop 
    Win (cmdline):  sc stop qubesupervisor

    (Qube 6.x and below only) On Linux and OS X, the Supervisor's database tables are not removed by the uninstall utility. Before removing the Supervisor software, you may want to run this command:
    $QBDIR/utils/upgrade_supervisor --erase

    This will drop all the database tables cleanly. It is not necessary to do this on Windows, as they are stored in the Qube! install itself.


    • /sbin/service worker stop 
    OS X:       
    • SystemStarter stop worker 


    • stop the qubworker service:
      • Use the Services control dialog 
      • From the command prompt:  sc stop qubeworker
    • Kill the watchdog process from the Windows Task Manager

    Linux:        rpm –qa qube*# rpm –ev package1 package2 …
    OS X:        Open a Finder and delete the /Applications/pfx/ directory 
    Windows:  Open the "Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs" and remove the Qube! Components ("Qube! Worker Service", "Qube! Core", Qube Jobtypes, etc)..

    Additional Cleanup

    A manual uninstall does not get everything - remove these additional files.


      1. The configuration files in /etc are not removed, and must be removed by hand - 
        1. /etc/qb.conf* 
        2. /etc/my.cnf backups
        3. /etc/qb.lic
      2. (Qube 6.x and below) The directories in /usr/local/mysql/ are not removed by the upgrade_supervisor --erase command
        1. /usr/local/mysql/qube
        2. /usr/local/mysql/pfx_*
      3. (Qube 7.0 and above) : the PostgreSQL database software and data
        1. /usr/local/pfx/pgsql 

    OS X

      1. From WranglerView, click on the menu items "Administration->AutoStart ____:Enabled->Disable".to remove the auto-start for Supervisor and Worker if enabled.
      2. From the Finder, locate the supervisor and worker folders in the /Library/StartupItems folder.
      3. Locate the qube-supervisor, qube-worker, and qube-core installation pkg file in the /Library/Receipts folder and drag it to the Trash
      4. /Applications/pfx directory
        1. this includes the PostgreSQL software and data, in /Applications/pfx/pgsql


    • Delete these entire directories:
      • C:\Program Files\pfx
      • C:\Program Files (x86)\pfx
      • C:\ProgramData\Pfx



    • No labels
