Can't uninstall Nextcloud

NethServer release 7.6.1810 (final)

To test and try some features I installed Nextcloud as well as SOGo. I read there may be some incompatibilities with CalDAV etc if trying to use both so I uninstalled Nextcloud using Software Centre.

But its not dead! I can still connect to my Nextcloud and see al the test data I input.

Nextcloud does not appear to be installed, its available to install again in Software Centre. I can log out and back into Nextcloud, and the same is true when I use a browser on another computer, so its not just a cache.

How can this be? How do I correctly uninstall apps like Nextcloud?


A quick search show this also happened to someone a couple of years ago with OwnCloud.

Perhaps someone can give me the commands to remove Nextcloud in the same way.

But I thought that’s what Software Centre was doing…

Thanks again.

yum remove nextcloud nethserver-nextcloud

Thanks Dan. In the thread about OwnCloud it was suggested to remove other files including the database. Can I / should I do this by changing ‘owncloud’ to ‘nextcloud’?

yum remove owncloud nethserver-owncloud
rm -rf /var/www/html/owncloud
mysql -e "drop database owncloud;"

If you want to remove all the user data, it’s in /var/lib/nethserver/nextcloud. The database should be named nextcloud, as you expect.
