Unable to uninstall bitbucket data center on my server


I have installed the bitbucket server data center version (7.10.0) on one of my EC2 instance (RHEL7) with the latest version of git (2.21.1) on it. But, it gives an error message "Unable to detect whether the bitbucket is started correctly".

I tried to remove the folders and install it again but still having issues installing the bitbucket on that server.

Did you install Bitbucket as a service? If so, did you remove the service file as well?

If you installed with a root user: make sure to change the file ownerhship to the same user that will run the service (preferably not the root user).

Hi Charlie,

Thank you for your response. Yes, I installed it as a service. Can you please help me with the service file location ?

Servicefiles are under /etc/systemd on RHEL7 when using systemctl. It could be in the user or system subdirectory.

But removing the file will not be sufficient. You should use the systemctl command to do a cleanup.

I'm not a Linux expert byt this answer on stackexchange could help.

Thank you Charlie. That information is helpful. I will try that out.
