Default ISPConfig 3 broken after web update


A few weeks ago I logged in to my ISPConfig 3 and selected the update function. After the update ISPConfig no longer works and appears to have been wiped out of the server.

I tried downloading latest and updating but I get "Unable to read server configuration from database."

If I try running install.php I get "ISPConfig 3 installation found. Please use update.php instead if install.php to update the installation."

Edit: The server is still running fine with all the configured services, but I can't get to the panel to administer it :-s

Please see here for instructions to rebuild the missing config files:

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

I am running a multiserver setup with vers

Followed the guide, but still get
Checking ISPConfig database .. OK
Unable to read server configuration from database
Right after I run the ispconfig_update.sh I get :
Notice: Undefined offset: 0 in /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/update.php on line 88

Notice: Undefined index: timezone in /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/update.php on line 99
This application will update ISPConfig 3 on your server.
