chgrp: invalid group `admispconfig'
 
Ok, its my fault for not uninstalling properly, I admit it, but now I get an "almost" good install, it deletes the install directory and gives me.
Code:

1) HTTPS
2) HTTP
Your Choice: 1

chown: `admispconfig:admispconfig': invalid group

Starting ISPConfig system...
ispconfig_httpd: bad group name admispconfig
/root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl startssl: httpd could not be started
ISPConfig system is now up and running!
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.

This is about the third go round with this, I then use the uninstall utility, then use yast to remove both the user and group admispconfig from the system, check that its gone from /etc/passwd and try a new install of ispconfig. 3 times the same thing.

What is going on ? each time I get this user entry in /etc/passwd and in yast users/groups after the install:

admispconfig:x:1001:1001:Administrator ISConfig:/home/admispconfig:/bin/bash

In Yast group ID 1001 belongs to group admispconfig with only user admispconfig as a member of the group.



Somewhere somehow my machine now hates that group. :(

Code:

ares:~ # touch junk
ares:~ # chgrp admispconfig junk
chgrp: invalid group `admispconfig'

Any ideas ? If the machine was not 300 miles away I would have already just formatted the disk and started over. I have all the other issues fixed . No doubt its some SuSE thing, never thought I would miss HPUX.

Thanks in advance

OH bloody HELL I think I accidently removed the "empty" line at the end of etc/passwd like ::::: grrrrrrr.
