Default Server settings don't save

I am unable to change passwords, realized that the Server settings are not correct nor the email, (email is sendmail when I have postfix installed).

When I change the server settings the screen changes, but when I go back in still the same.

Note: This is the server I lost the database on months ago, finally had someone who forgot their password, and we can not get it to change.

At a loss as to where to start.

Thanks much.

Maybe you find something in /root/ispconfig/ispconfig.log?

Did you load the sql dump for ISPConfig manually into the database?

Default Not sure

It has been a while. Are you asking if I manually ran the setup script.

I would think I did, as that is what you at least at one time had to do, not?

No. Till wanted to know if you imported the db_ispconfig.sql dump that comes with ISPConfig manually, or if you just ran the installer. Because some people make the mistake of importing that file manually, but it should be done by the installer.

Guess my reply was not very good.

What I meant to say, is yes, I believe (hard to remember) I manually ran the database setup script after the regular setup. As the setup did not create the tables.

If this is/was a mistake is there a fix?

May I suggest changing the readme for that database setup script to say DO NOT RUN THIS.

I guess you created the database manually befoer you installed ISPConfig so the ISPConfig installer was not able to create it itself and this resulted in a broken installation.

To fix this, you will have to uninstall ISPConfig and reinstall it. The database is created and fileld by the setup script with values gathered from your system.

run:

/root/ispconfig/uninstall

all configuration data in ISPConfig will be lost.

There is no readme file or instruction that tells you to do this. For installation instructions, please have a look at the installation manual and there is note to create any databases before you install ISPConfig or upload any database dumps.

So this will not delete the email accounts, and recreate them when reinstalled?

Just want to make sure, I don't go from working email accounts that can not change passwords to, no email accounts.

-----
When I ran
php /root/ispconfig/uninstall
I got

PHP Notice: Undefined variable: HTTP_GET_VARS in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php on line 32

If you uninstall ISPConfig, it will delete your email accounts.

I am getting more confused by these replies.

How is this a fix then?

Is there anyway to keep the email for users? I don't have a problem recreating the accounts via ISPconfig, but don't want to lose all the email.

Right now I can not even unistall, (see errors below), are these related issues?
