Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Uninstall AOLserver
It depends on how you installed it and how you uninstall it, but you never ever have to reformat your machine. Basically, undelete the aolserver binary directory (usually under /usr/local or /usr/lib/) and the aolserver server pages directory (e.g. /var/www/openacs), the aolserver start script (if there is one) in /etc/init.d and the start and stop scripts. That's all. Good bye.
