The uninstall option should take care of the uninstall.

If it doesn’t, you can manually delete it using:

sudo rm -rf /etc/.pihole /etc/pihole /opt/pihole /usr/bin/pihole-FTL /usr/local/bin/pihole /var/www/html/admin

With /var/www/html/admin instead of /var/www/html/pihole it worked, thanks :slight_smile:
