Not necessarily. ISPConfig just changes the files where you have changed something in the ISPConfig interface. Let's say you have enabled PHP for a web site, then ISPConfig will just rewrite the vhost configuration file of that web site. So if you did not restore the other vhost configuration files, then these vhost won't work. So I suggest you back up the Apache, Postfix, Courier/Dovecot, BIND configuration as well.

Yes, it's a good idea to restore /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow first.

ISPConfig checks for changes every minute.
