To finish uninstalling

Depending on your version of Mac OS X or Final Cut Server, you may need to follow one or more of these steps:

  • For Mac OS X v10.6, follow this additional step:
  • Open the Terminal application and enter the following command (case sensitive) and an administrator password when prompted:

    sudo pkgutil --forget com.apple.pkg.FinalCutServer

  • For Final Cut Server 1.5, remove this additional file:

    /Library/Application Support/ProApps/ProAppsSystemID
  • Note: If Final Cut Studio (2009) or Logic Studio (2009) are also installed on the system from which you remove the ProAppsSystemID, you will need to re-serialize those applications when you next open them.

  • To remove the Final Cut Server user account from the local database, run the following command in Terminal (you will need an administrator account): 

    sudo dscl localhost delete /Local/Default/Users/fcsvr
  • To remove Final Cut Server web server information from Mac OS X, run the following command in Terminal:

    sudo rm /private/etc/apache2/users/fcsvr.conf

    To remove Final Cut Server web server information from Mac OS X Server, remove the following lines from the "mod rewrite" section of the /private/etc/apache2/sites/0000_any_80_.conf file:

    RewriteRule ^/FinalCutServer$ /~fcsvr/Sites/webstart/index.php [NC,L]
