I installed bitcoind on my ubuntu server awhile ago. How do I go about uninstalling it properly? Do i just delete the ~/.bitcoin folder?
If you installed with a
deb package, you can use apt-get to remove it:
sudo apt-get remove bitcoind
That will remove your
bitcoin.conf and all the
blockchain info, but you will also want to remove the
bitcoin directory which was also downloaded and if you added
bitcoind to your path you'l want to remove that as well.
you will unistall bitcoin and the related folder by running the fellowing commands
rm -rf ~/.bitcoin sudo apt-get remove bitcoind sudo apt autoremove
