Default Database already contains some tables.

After reinstalling for 2nd-4th time ISPConfig3, I got this error:
"Stopped: Database already contains some tables."

It is a fresh server that I am setting up now:
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
ISPConfig 3 version: whatever was downloaded on Feb 3rd with
wget http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/I...-stable.tar.gz

The reason I am reinstalling is that I got other errors before, that I fixed. Like "Postfix missing". So I had to install postfix, just for the ispconfig installation to finish, although I am not interested in making postfix work.

Please tell me where the tables are located and I can just go delete them (from ftp client).

You must delete the ISPConfig database:
mysql -u root -p

mysql> DROP DATABASE dbispconfig;

mysql> quit;
BTW, you should use one of the setups described here (will make your life easier ): http://www.ispconfig.org/ispconfig-3/documentation/
