There are a few different ways to uninstall, depending on how you installed it in the first place.


Simply delete the and pagekite.cfg files from your desktop or home folder.

Mac OS X or Linux

If you installed using the curl-based installer or a manual download, the following commands should remove from your system:

$ sudo rm $(which $(which

If you installed using the Debian package:

$ sudo apt-get remove pagekite python-pysocksipychain

You may also want to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out or remove the line mentioning PageKite.

If you installed the RPM package:

$ sudo rpm -e pagekite python-socksipychain

If you added the apt repository, you may also want to remove it using this command:

$ sudo rpm -e pagekite-repo...

    Tried uninstalling (Linux, installed with curl method)

    Get this error : rm: missing operand

    I'd really like to use this but I cannot find any instruction how to actually see a locally hosted site. I create an account but all I see is the xampp dashboard.

    How do I see all the site I'm hosting on localhost?

    I'd like to change the leading name to something else. How do I do it, please?
    (I'm setting up a covid-19 support forum for my road and want to make the name more meaningful)
