Removing Openfire in OS X

Not sure what happened, but I can no longer get OF to start up in OS X. I’'d like to give it another shot, but re-running the package installer fails, so I figured the best bet would be to remove the corrupt installation, if need be manually. How can I remove Openfire in OS X?

Running


lsbom /Library/Receipts/Wildfire.pkg/Contents/Archive.bom


in Terminal will get you a list of everything touched by the installer. Basically it’'s:

/usr/local/wildfire/

/Library/PreferencePanes/Wildfire.prefpane

/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.jivesoftware.wildfire.plist

Thanks for the reply. I was able to reinstall the package by first doing the following:

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/wildfire

sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/Wildfire.prefPane

sudo rm -rf /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.jivesoftware.wildfire.plist

sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/Wildfire.pkg

I appreciate the advice!
