Uninstall the Tiny Editors Integration on Linux, Unix or AIX

Running the uninstaller script will automate the removal of the Tiny Editors Integration on Linux, Unix or AIX.

Before you begin

Before you begin:
  • Determine the host_name of the server hosting HCL Connections.
  • Get user access as the HCL Connections installer or higher administrative permissions, on both:
    • The host server.
    • The WebSphere Application Server Console.


  1. Determine the Connections paths (customization_path and provision_path).
    1. Log in to the web interface of the WebSphere Application Server Console.
      The default address is: https://host_name:9043/ibm/console
    2. Expand Environment and click the WebSphere variables link.
      WebSphere Variables link
    3. Find the CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH in the variables list and record the value which will be referred to as customization_path from this point.
      Connections customization path variable
    4. Find the CONNECTIONS_PROVISION_PATH in the variables list and record the value which will be referred to as provision_path from this point.
      Connections provision path variable
Attention: We strongly recommend:
  • Setting up SSH key access to the Connections host server.
  • Using a local SSH agent to avoid password prompts when logging in via SSH.
The following script makes numerous connections, and connection prompts for a password if SSH keys are not used.
  1. Run the uninstall script located in the root directory of the Tiny Editors for HCL Connections package as follows:
    ./uninstall.sh user@host_name customization_path provision_path/webresources 
    Note: This command will automatically backup any existing configuration it finds in
    • customization_path/javascript/tiny/editors/connections
    • customization_path/javascript/ephox/editors/connections
    • customization_path/javascript/ephox/editlive/connections
    If you do not wish for a backup to be created run the uninstall script with the optional --no-backup parameter, e.g.:
    ./uninstall.sh --no-backup user@host_name customization_path provision_path/webresources 
    Figure 1. Running the uninstall script
    ./uninstall.sh root@p-ce-conncr5-01 /shared_content/customization /shared_content/provision/webresources

  2. Follow the post-customization steps to ensure the server cache is updated.
