I have iFolder server running on my ubuntu server and would like to remove it. I can find the instructions for installing but not how to remove. Has anyone done this before and can give me some pointers?

How did you install it? – Andrew M. May 21 '12 at 19:57
@AndrewM. using the instructions I posted a link to below... Repeated here:… – williamsdb May 23 '12 at 8:36

Post the instructions you used to install the software. From a quick google search I conclude you probably build the deb and installed it. In that case you can try:

apt-get remove simias-server

I will have used the instructions from here: – williamsdb May 22 '12 at 7:55
Actually I now realise that's not true I used these:… – williamsdb May 22 '12 at 8:06
So I went ahead and tried to remove using the suggested command but I get E: Couldn't find package simias-server. Any other suggestions? – williamsdb May 25 '12 at 15:16

have you tried

# apt-get remove ifolder* libflaim* log4net*

or something like that? then to remove all of the data and files related to the ifolder syncs

# rm -rf /var/simias

thats the default location

find / -name "simias"

should tell you where it is if it's not in the default. the */simias/data folder is where all the files that have been syncd reside as well as the config

Hi Daniel - that brings back "E: Couldn't find package ifolder*" but the folder /var/simias does exist so is definitely installed. Could it be called anything else? Thanks Neil – williamsdb May 27 '12 at 16:51


try dpkg -l and look for anything with ifolder or simias then you should be able to apt-get remove that package. it's been a while since i've been on ubuntu but i hope this helps.

can you start a topic at maybe? i think it would help the community.
