how to get a clean installation of hipchat


I would like to get a clean slate with hipchat datacenter. basically run the wizard all over again.

I have deleted and recreated the database.
I have purged redis
I have removed all files in the nfs share.

Still when I access hipchat I get the login page.
What else do I have to reset?

Hi Torbjörn, 

The missing piece here is to remove the setup wizard hidden flag: 

rm /opt/atlassian/.license/.wizard

For more details, checkout How to re-enable the setup wizard in Hipchat Data Center.
