Final steps of installation failed (wrong mysql details)
I've just installed ISPConfig 2 - well nearly anyway.

Ubuntu 10.04 Server.

In the last few steps where it asks for the MYSQL details, I entered a \ in the password accidentally. This has the result of the insaller being unable to create the required databases and as a result there is no user table and I can't login to ISPConfig.... Without uninstalling and re-installing from scratch, can I manually create the required tables or preferably, is there a scrip to do this?
Here's the output from the last few steps of the install process...


Please select the protocol (http or https (SSL encryption)) to use to access the ISPConfig system:

You have to rerun the ispconfig installation as the mysql datbase is populated with server specific details,so you cant load the data from a sql dump manually.

From scratch? Uninstall and remove the directories?

Delete the directories /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig, the ispconfig mysql database, then unpack the ispconfig.tar.gz and run the setup script.

Ok, I'll do that. Thanks for your help.
