Broken installation
 
My installation of ISPConfig on Ubuntu 6.06 TLS went without a hitch until I reached the 'questionaire' at the end. As I hadn't at that point set any passwords following the MySQL installation I broke the ISPConfig installation to do that, but then couldn't get back into, or find anyway of re-starting, the ISPConfig installation.

So I did a re-install - as though it was an update, but again there doesn't seem to be any way of redoing the config file even though there isn't one for the install to utilise, vis:-
......
cc -o unzipsfx unzipsfx.o crc32.o crctab_.o crypt_.o extract_.o fileio_.o globals_.o inflate_.o match_.o process_.o ttyio_.o unix_.o -s
All prerequisites are fulfilled.
Here we go...

Congratulations! Your ISPConfig system is now installed. If you had to install quota, please take the steps described in the installation manual. Otherwise your system is now available without reboot.

root@elaine:/tmp/install_ispconfig# ls

Despite the 'Congratulations' I can't actually get into ISPConfig as I haven't been able to define the hostnames and access method! As you can see the 'install_ispconfig' directory is now empty.

Is there any way of manually completing a config. file with the required info or starting the config script? Or must I completely erase the failed installation and start again?

Thanks.

Run:

rm -rf /root/ispconfig
rm -rf /home/admispconfig

and delete the ISPConfig database if it exists, then then try to install again.

until I try to direct my browser as advised, at which point:

IE6 says it can't connect,
Opera 8 spits the dummy, and
Firefox tells me it "could not establish an encrypted connection because the certificate presented by {ip address} has an invalid signature"

I did a forum search for "invalid signature" but nothing came up which suggests I'm the first to have this problem which probably means I'm an idiot - it makes me feel like one - but any suggestions/advice appreciated.

Looks as if your SSL cert is broken. maynbe you entered invalid values during setup. To recreate the SSL certificate, have a look here:

Thanks, thanks, thanks Till. Advice actioned and ISPConfig fully functional in ten minutes.

Spent the next ten hours reading up on what I did and why.
