Hello Charles,

Thank you for your inquire.

In order to uninstall Bamboo, please:

  1. go to <bamboo-install> directory by running the following command from Terminal:

    $ cd /path/to/&lt;bamboo-install&gt;
  2. run the following command from Terminal to stop Bamboo:

    $ ./bin/

    It might take a while (seconds) until Bamboo's process ends

  3. make sure the service has stopped by running the following from Terminal:

    $ ps aux | grep bamboo
    USERNAME        667   0.0  0.0  2434836    764 s000  S+    9:45PM   0:00.00 grep bamboo

    If you receive more than one entry as follow:

    $ ps aux | grep bamboo
    USERNAME        718 144.0  1.2  4274544 101324 s000  U     9:47PM   0:02.44 /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_65.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/path/to/atlassian-bamboo-5.9.7/conf/ -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xms256m -Xmx384m  -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/path/to/atlassian-bamboo-5.9.7/endorsed -classpath /path/to/atlassian-bamboo-5.9.7/bin/bootstrap.jar:/path/to/atlassian-bamboo-5.9.7/bin/tomcat-juli.jar -Dcatalina.base=/path/to/atlassian-bamboo-5.9.7 -Dcatalina.home=/path/to/atlassian-bamboo-5.9.7 org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start
    USERNAME        667   0.0  0.0  2434836    764 s000  S+    9:45PM   0:00.00 grep bamboo

    Please 'kill' Bamboo's process:

    $ kill -9 718
    // please, notice 718 is the process where Bamboo is running and this value might change in your case
  4. go to <bamboo-install>/atlassian-bamboo/WEB-INF/classes/ and take note of 'bamboo.home' value
  5. delete <bamboo-install> directory
  6. delete <bamboo-home> directory

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.
