Having just migrated Confluence v5.6.6 from HSQLDB to MySQL prior to upgrading the "MySQL instance" to Confluence v5.7.1, I now wish to uninstall/remove the old "HSQLDB instance" of Confluence.
My preference is to manually remove the old Confluence so that I can be absolutely certain that nothing in the new Confluence gets touched.
What would be the process for this? I have all the logs safely archived and there's no database worry because the (unwanted) HSQLDB is stored in /database under Confluence Home. is it as simple as:
That's the basic gist. Remove the directory that Confluence needs to run (the install directory), delete the directory where Confluence stores its data (the home directory), and delete/drop the database.
If you installed Confluence using the Linux installer, you can use the uninstall command as described here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Uninstalling+Confluence+from+Linux.
Hope this helps!
