    Unanswered: Uninstall Postgres 9.4

    I have PostgreSQL 9.4 installed on my Mac OS 10.10.3. I want to completely uninstall it, including any databases, settings, and remnants that might be on my computer.

    What I have tried:
    - There is no /Library/Postgres folder. There is no uninstall feature.
    - If I drag the applications to the trash bins, I just delete the icons. I don't uninstall anything.
    - Using "brew" in Terminal doesn't do anything.

    In my Applications folder is:
    pgAdmin III
    Reload Configuration
    SQL Shell (psql)
    a folder called "PostgreSQL 9.4 (other)" which contains 4 PDF documents.

    How do I get rid of this? Thanks so much for your help!

    How did you install PostgreSQL 9.4? Did you install this:
    I see you tried to remove it w/ Homebrew which likely means you used a 3rd party tool to install it.

    1. If you used Homebrew to install PG, use it to uninstall it.
    2. If you just installed the native OS X installer, all you do is drag that app from your /Applications directory unto the trash and THAT IS IT!
