Yes, because the installer then thinks that it's a completely new installation and creates a new (nearly empty) ISPConfig database.

If you want to re-install, you can just run the installer (without removing any directories before), it will then recognize that it's an update and perform the necessary steps.

even removing the db_ispconfig data base from mysql along with the two directories mentioned above leave crap in several places and the next install is not clean by any means.

I am up to web4 as the initial web and there is an anon ftp user in my /etc/passwd file that appears every time reinstall.

as futher example this is at the bottom of the /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf file.

AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
Alias /error/ "/var/www/web4/web/error/"
ErrorDocument 400 /error/invalidSyntax.html
ErrorDocument 401 /error/authorizationRequired.html
ErrorDocument 403 /error/forbidden.html
ErrorDocument 404 /error/fileNotFound.html
ErrorDocument 405 /error/methodNotAllowed.html
ErrorDocument 500 /error/internalServerError.html
ErrorDocument 503 /error/overloaded.html
AliasMatch ^/~([^/]+)(/(.*))? /var/www/web4/user/$1/web/$3
AliasMatch ^/users/([^/]+)(/(.*))? /var/www/web4/user/$1/web/$3

To uninstall a working installation, you should run
Code:
/root/ispconfig/uninstall
instead of removing everything manually!

doh !!! When in doubt RTFM

The uninstaller gives you the following options to select from:
Partial Deinstallation: Only the ISPConfig system itself will be uninstalled, but not the
webs, users, DNS records etc. created by it.
·
Complete Deinstallation: The ISPConfig system and also the objects created by it (webs,
users, DNS records, etc.) will be uninstalled.

If I do a partial uninstall of ISPConfig, and keep all my users, DNS entries, websites, etc., can I reinstall ISPConfig to basically get back to homeostasis?

Here is my dilemma. I'm an idiot, and I didn't back up the ispconfig MySQL database before running an update. When the update finished, the database was empty, and I could not log in to the control panel.

What's weird is I can still login to webmail, I can login to FTP shares, and I can still send and receive mail as if nothing were wrong. I just cannot login to the control panel, and the ispconfig DB is empty.

No, beacuse ISPConfig will not be able to manage the accounts again when the ISPConfig database is lost.

ISPConfig makes a backup of the mysql database before the update. Please have a look at your /tmp directory, do you have a .sql file there?

Thats normal. Your services are using config files which were written by ISPConfig and not the ISPConfig database.
