How do I delete a bika instance?

Up to table of contents

This FAQ applies to: 1.2, 1.1

Once bika's database is populated with data, it is no longer possible to delete that Bika instance, but how can i delete it?

To delete an instance, you first have to clear the reference catalog, you can do this by:

  1. Login into the ZMI (Zope Management Interface) with your admin login/password.
  2. Go to your bika instance (in my case 'bika')
  3. Go to 'reference_catalog'
  4. Click on the 'Advanced' tab
  5. Click on 'Clear catalog
  6. Now you can select the bika instance and delete it, from the ZMI root. - Home of Bika Lab Systems, implementers of web based open source LIMS, Plone hosting and content management systems   Powered by Plone, the open source content management system.
