Desinstalar MediaWiki por completo pode ser realizado em dois passos: removendo a diretoria onde o MediaWiki foi instalado, e eliminar a base de dados do MediaWiki de MySQL ou Postgres.

Eliminação dos ficheiros do MediaWiki

To uninstall the wiki itself, simply delete the directory containing the wiki's files. For example, if you installed MediaWiki to /var/www/mediawiki-xyz, you might do:

rm -rf /var/www/mediawiki-xyz
Aviso Aviso: Depending how you configured your wiki, uploaded files and images may be stored within a sub-directory of the installation directory. If you don't want to delete the uploaded content, make sure you move this to a safe place before deleting!

Eliminação da base de dados

Also, if you installed your wiki into an existing database that also contains other unrelated tables DO NOT use the instructions below or you will lose everything. In this case you will need to manually delete each of the wiki's tables. See the instructions for your database software for more details about how to do this.
This assumes that you used the default database name during install. If you used a database name other than wikidb you may have to replace wikidb below with whatever name you used for your database.

Alternatively, you can use a DB administrative tool, such as PHPMyAdmin, to perform the same action.


To remove the Postgres database holding your wiki, run the following command:

dropdb wikidb

or connect to the database as a user with the correct permissions and issue:
