How to Uninstall EasyApache 4?
It’s possible to uninstall EasyApache 4 if you have migrated your system from EasyApache 3
Steps to uninstall EasyApache 4 –
Run the following command to revert from EasyApache 4 to EasyApache 3 –
/scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 –revert –run
This command reverts the system to your previous EasyApache 3 installation and configuration.
This command attempts to move the Apache files to a new location and reverts the server to the previous state. You can upgrade and downgrade as many times as you wish.
- 1. Each time a migration is performed from EasyPache 3 to EasyApache 4, the system moves the /usr/local/apache/ directory to the /usr/local/apache.3/ directory.
- a. If the /usr/local/apache.3 is available, the system moves the /usr/local/apache/ directory to the /usr/local/apache.3.1/ directory.
- b. If the /usr/local/apache.3.1 is available while running a migration, the migration will fail for preventing data loss.
- 2. The chance of errors increases dramatically, if you migrate your system multiple times.In case you revert several times, you need to manually delete the previous /usr/local/apache.3.1 backup directory to continue. The system preserves the /usr/local/apache/ automatically.
Follow the system’s instructions.
