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.

Kind regards,
