How to Uninstall Plugin

If Jenkins’ version earlier than 1.487, need manually uninstalling the plugin.

To see version, go to http://localhost:8080/about/?

To manually uninstall a plugin,

  • stop Hudson/Jenkins
sudo service jenkins stop
  • go to your HUDSON_HOME/plugins directory ( /var/lib/jenkins/plugins ) and remove both 1) .hpi file and 2) folder with the same name. So, if you were going to remove the CVS plugin, you would remove both the cvs.hpi file and the cvs directory.
  • restart Hudson/Jenkins and the plugin won’t be there anymore.
sudo service jenkins start
