Uninstalling the agent

When uninstalling New Relic from a PHP application, you must remove the New Relic agent and also remove associated New Relic configuration files.

To uninstall the PHP agent from your system:

    Run the newrelic-install script with no options and select the uninstall option from the main menu when invoking the script.

    Ubuntu or Debian

    Use apt-get to remove the agent:

    apt-get remove newrelic-php5
  2. Remove any remaining New Relic configuration files. Use the newrelic-install or apt-get remove commands with the purge option.

    newrelic-install purge


    apt-get remove --purge newrelic
