TIL Remove a Znode from Zookeeper

Yep, you could easily achieve that (and much more) using zkCli.sh (Zookeeper client):

$ /usr/share/zookeeper/bin/zkCli.sh 
Connecting to localhost:2181
Welcome to ZooKeeper!
JLine support is enabled

WATCHER::

WatchedEvent state:SyncConnected type:None path:null

[zk: localhost:2181(CONNECTED) 0] help
ZooKeeper -server host:port cmd args
	connect host:port
	get path [watch]
	ls path [watch]
	set path data [version]
	rmr path
	delquota [-n|-b] path
	quit 
	printwatches on|off
	create [-s] [-e] path data acl
	stat path [watch]
	close 
	ls2 path [watch]
	history 
	listquota path
	setAcl path acl
	getAcl path
	sync path
	redo cmdno
	addauth scheme auth
	delete path [version]
	setquota -n|-b val path

Issue “rmr” (to remove recursively) or “delete” to remove a znode.

TIL HSTS requires a secure transport

Otherwise (quoting RFC6797):

If an HTTP response is received over insecure transport, the UA MUST ignore any present STS header field(s).

That means SSL certificate on your server must be valid, i.e. no errors or warnings when you open a page from a browser over https.
