Anyone know of how one can uninstall ruby on rails?

A customer of ours wants it completely removed from their dedicated server, and while cPanel (their control panel they're using) does allow them to install the software through /scripts/installruby, there is no UNINSTALL procedure. There's also nothing in the DOCS on cPanel, and the forums at cPanel are not showing any removal procedures. Just two posts - one from January 2008 (unanswered) and January 2009 (also, unanswered).

Anyone have any solutions other than using a "yum remove ruby" command, or "rm -rf /usr/local/ruby" ?

Yeah - saw that video too - just didn't know if anything in cPanel would go screwy given that it was a cpanel install file that was used.

I also found things like
Code:
to get rid of directories with ruby in the name of the directory

sudo find -path /usr/local/ -print0 -type d -lname *ruby* | xargs -0 rm -f
But again - haven't tried either of those YET as I wasn't sure how cPanel would react. I've got a test machine that I'm setting up here tonight to install and try remove rails from it to see what happens though.

Good lookin out on that video though!

I haven't had any issues with cPanel doing the uninstall manually.
I haven't done one recently though so I can't vouch for the most recent build of cPanel.

Well, for the record (on 11.24 cpanel) - removing manually and killing folders etc DOES seem to stop things. As of yet I haven't had any issues on the cPanel with errors (YET).

Use at your own risk I guess is the disclaimer
