But one thing is very scary. ISPConfig seems to delete the current installation or at least renders it unusable and does a "full" install on another call of "setup". In my case all my data was lost that i have setuped before. Luckily i only have one test reseller/customer/site running but this would be a major pain if i would have done more.
No. ISPConfig does a backup. But if you run the update again without restoring it or recreating the directory /root/ispconfig, it will cause data loss of course.

For future users i would really provide a newer VMWare version of ISPConfig. I mean many people are trying things out with VMWare images and in my case, i am also running these in production.
You can download current vmware images for all supported linux distributions here on howtoforge if you are a member. The vmware image on the vmware site is no official image from the ispconfig project and we provide no updates for it.
