Default Configuring an existing ISPConfig installation

I have to work with an ISPConfig installation on a production server, which has various parts missing or not configured. The previous admin left, so I have to figure out everything for myself.

I have some questions about configuring the parts that were left out:

- How do i tell ISPConfig which mysql user to use for creating databases? (And even, which server it should connect to)
- How do I tell the system which database MyDNS uses?

I would've thought there is a config-file somewhere, and I tried the one in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib but that file doesn't look like it contains all the things I want to configure (more than these two questions, but these two are most important for now).

I hope somebody can help me.

To reconfigure your system, download the latest ispconfig 3 release and run the update.php script. The script will ask you if you want to reconfigure the system and you should select 'y' to recreate the missing config files.

- How do I tell the system which database MyDNS uses?
The mydns database is the ispconfig database. The above step of reconfiguring services will create the nescessary configuration for mydns too.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
