Removing the Ether-1 node services and data is as simple as disabling the services and deleting the application data. When you disable the services, they still exist on your system but they are not executed upon reboot.
Regardless of which node you're running, executing all the following commands will disable all Ether-1 Node services.
sudo systemctl stop ethoFSsudo systemctl disable ethoFSsudo systemctl stop ipfssudo systemctl disable ipfssudo systemctl stop ether1nodesudo systemctl disable ether1node
Delete all IPFS data and chain data by executing:
rm -rf /home/ether1node/.ipfs/*rm -rf /home/ether1node/.ether1/*
If you've changed your mind and want to run the Ether-1 Node (regardless of type) after all, you can reverse the whole process and return into a fully synchronized and running node by executing:
sudo systemctl enable ether1nodesudo systemctl start ether1nodesudo systemctl enable ipfssudo systemctl start ipfssudo systemctl enable ethoFSsudo systemctl start ethoFS
Whether you've decided to stick with your decision to disable the Ether-1 Node services or decided to enable them again, you can use the commands below to determine their status.
Make sure the Ether-1 processes are either running or not running by executing:
sudo journalctl -f -u ether1node -u ethoFS -u ipfs
You should see no records indicating activity if the services are disabled. If you see activity, the services are running.
You can also check the operational status of the Ether-1 Node services by executing:
sudo systemctl status ethoFSsudo systemctl status ipfssudo systemctl status ether1node
The first 2 commands are specifically for Gateway Nodes while the last one is common across all Ether-1 nodes. If the services are disabled, that will be reflected in the status message returned.
