You should only do this on your local environment if you have followed the Learn instructions to change your bash_profile. Do not try this on the IDE.

  1. cd ~
  2. confirm that you have .bash_profile.bak in your root directory
  3. If it is present, rm .bash_profile (This will delete the current .bash_profile)
  4. mv .bash_profile.bak .bash_profile (This will rename the backup file so it is now the .bash_profile)
  5. source .bash_profile (This will reload the new .bash_profile in the currently open terminal)
  6. If your old bash profile isn't in effect in your terminal, you may need to close all open terminal windows and then open a new terminal window
