    JBoss EAP 6.4 Uninstall issue

    Geoff Nunan Newbie

      I had JBoss EAP 6.4 installed on my server and working.

       

      I uninstalled JBoss EAP 6.4, but the web page at http:\\localhost:8080 is still showing the EAP home page. The link to the admin console does not work, but the web server is still serving the page.

       

      I deleted the install directory, re-started the server, deleted the install files, but still cant seem to stop the local web server hosting the page at http:\\localhost:8080

       

      I re-installed JBoss, which worked fine, and un-installed again, which worked fine, but http:\\localhost:8080 is still showing that EAP6 is running.

       

      What should I try next?

          It's your browser cache which is caching the welcome page. Please clear the Browser Cache  and then try again.

           

          Of you can also try utilities like "wget" or "curl" to validate the same:  (url should be : http:\\localhost:8080   not  http://localhost:8080)

           

          Example:

           

          $ curl -v http://localhost:8080

           

          * Rebuilt URL to: http://localhost:8080/
          *   Trying ::1...
          * connect to ::1 port 8080 failed: Connection refused
          *   Trying 127.0.0.1...
          * connect to 127.0.0.1 port 8080 failed: Connection refused
          * Failed to connect to localhost port 8080: Connection refused
          * Closing connection 0
          curl: (7) Failed to connect to localhost port 8080: Connection refused
          

           

          If JBoss EAP 6.4 is not running on that port then the above command should give you the same result. So in that case either you try with a fresh browser (without browser cache) or try with another browser.

            You might check with "jps -v" whether there is a java process left if you stop/uninstall the server.

            On UNIX systems you might delete the directory but the running process is still able to access the files (until they are kept open)
