./setup doesnt check if mysql libs exists
./setup exits with success status even though mysql couldn't be compiled properly after one debian of mine didnt have libmysqlclient15-dev packages.

Maybe a check to see if mysql is compilable?

Are you sure there were absolutely no error messages?

No errors previous to compiling mysql headers.
It then completed by cleaning out the /tmp/install_ispconfig but setup script still continued and tried to unpack spamassassin, apr.tar.gz and many other packages after mysql.

Setup exited with a ispconfig installation complete message and proceeded to launch ispconfig. But it failed to start normal apache since cronolog wasn't compiled and had been removed out of /root/ispconfig . A lot of other directories under that directory were also empty.

The backup files created by setup were also removed from /tmp since setup script had succeded (at least it thought so), luckily I always proceed to store another backup before upgrades so I could restore my SSL conf.

Then I installed the mysql library package through apt-get, ran the setup again. Finished without errors, only thing I had to do was restore my SSL conf since that's the only thing I run custom.

But Im guessing I would've had a lot of issues if the setup hadn't upgraded mysql tables properly if there had been changes from previous versions.
Is there a way I can check to see if mysql table layout is correct?

Install the mysql database dump which is in the ispconfig installer into a new empty mysql database and compare the tables.

The installer removed the install directory after it had exited with a success status (even though it wasnt actually successful).

An installation of the libs and re-run of another extracted install archive worked though. It never touched the DB's so it works as supposed.

I still think there's some issue there when it finds mysql-server but cant verify if there are some other libraries missing.
