Uninstalling DDEV-Local

A DDEV-Local installation consists of:

  • The binary itself (self-contained)
  • The .ddev folder in a project
  • The ~/.ddev folder where various global items are stored.
  • The docker images and containers created.
  • Any entries in /etc/hosts

To uninstall a project:

ddev remove --remove-data and rm -r .ddev

To uninstall the global .ddev: rm -r ~/.ddev

To remove all /etc/hosts entries owned by ddev: ddev hostname --remove-inactive

If you installed docker just for ddev and want to uninstall it with all containers and images, just uninstall it for your version of Docker. google link.

Otherwise: To remove all ddev docker containers that might still exist: docker rm $(docker ps -a | awk '/ddev/ { print $1 }') To remove all ddev docker images that might exist: docker rmi $(docker images | awk '/ddev/ {print $3}')

To remove the ddev binary: On macOS with homebrew or Linux with Linuxbrew, brew uninstall ddev For linux or other simple installs, just remove the binary, for example sudo rm /usr/local/bin/ddev * On Windows (if you used the ddev Windows installer) use the uninstall on the start menu.
