Uninstalling DiffDog Server

Scroll Home Prev Top Next More

To uninstall DiffDog Server:

1.Stop the DiffDog Server service.


sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.altova.DiffDogServer.plist


To check whether a service has been stopped, open the Activity Monitor terminal and make sure that the service is not in the list. Double-check that the Activity Monitor shows all processes, not just "My processes" (On the View menu, click All processes.)


2.In Applications, right-click the DiffDog Server icon and select Move to Trash. Note that your DiffDog Server installation directory and configuration data are not removed by this step.

3.Optionally, if you want to remove the DiffDog Server installation directory as well, run the following command:


sudo rm -rf /usr/local/Altova/DiffDogServer2020/


Note:The steps above do not remove the configuration data from /var/Altova/DiffDogServer2020. Be aware that once the configuration data is removed, it cannot be recovered later.
