Lacking documentation to uninstall

I just installed Trac from the Dag repository because it seemed a lot easier than the alternative but now I have no idea how to remove it properly.

I've removed my project directory and uninstalled Trac with a 'yum remove' but my mywebsite.com/trac still shows the "Available repositories" page.

I've been advised to remove the Trac Python libraries but as far as I can see, yum has removed them already.

Could someone please advise me of what I must delete to completely rid my system of Trac.

I'm running CentOS 5.5 and Python 2.4. I've looked in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages but I don't see anything that appears to relate to Trac besides the plug-ins I downloaded while trying (in vain) to configure everything.

I realise this is not the place to ask for support but I'm posting this here because:

  1. Documentation on how to unistall is completely lacking
  2. The installation and unistallation procedures are unnecessarily complicated to the point where many people refuse to use Trac - even people who are specialised in a "complicated" profession
  3. The only installation procedure that is comprehensible by people who don't have 2 weeks to study the code isn't reversible using the same system (i.e yum)

this is a defect in documentation because it doesn't exist.

after installing a bunch of plugins, the entire trac installation is giving 500 errors.. need to wipe it clean. been installing things with easy_install..
