Uninstalling Vagrant

Uninstalling Vagrant is easy and straightforward. You can either uninstall the Vagrant binary, the user data, or both. The sections below cover how to do this on every platform.

Removing the Vagrant Program

Removing the Vagrant program will remove the vagrant binary and all dependencies from your machine. After uninstalling the program, you can always reinstall again using standard methods.

On Windows

Uninstall using the add/remove programs section of the control panel

On Mac OS X:

rm -rf /Applications/Vagrant
rm -f /usr/local/bin/vagrant
sudo pkgutil --forget com.vagrant.vagrant

On Linux:

rm -rf /opt/vagrant
rm -f /usr/bin/vagrant

Removing User Data

Removing the user data will remove all boxes, plugins, license files, and any stored state that may be used by Vagrant. Removing the user data effectively makes Vagrant think it is a fresh install.

On all platforms, remove the ~/.vagrant.d directory to delete the user data. When debugging, the Vagrant support team may ask you to remove this directory. Before removing this directory, please make a backup.

Running Vagrant will automatically regenerate any data necessary to run, so it is safe to remove the user data at any time.
