To run a clean install of ISPConfig after some previous installations fail, do the following steps:

1) Delete the install_ispconfig folder.
2) Delete the directories /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig
3) Delete the mysql database, if it was created or chose for the new installation attempt another database name. It is nescessary for the installer that no database with the name you chose exists.
4) After the installation, check your httpd.conf if there is a duplicated section at the end of the file. If so, delete the duplicate section so that the vhost configuration file is included only once.

Thanks Till... tried it but it failed at the part where i had to input my mySQL password.

I just did a by-the-letter reinstallation of the perfect Fedora Core 4 Setup on another computer and it worked beautifully. So I'm prolly gonna do that with the computer that i've been having so many problems with. The only problem i faced with this new installation on this new computer was that i accidentally input, right at the end, the hostname as www.myhostname.com instead of just "www".

heehee.. got a little to confident at the end and put the guide away...

So all the links that were in the adminPage pointed to the wrong URL.. the FQDN ended up pointing to www.myhostname.com.myhostname.com. I managed to change some data in my hosts file to temporarily point the links in the right direction.
I then managed to access the ISPConfig admin page and change the value in for hostname so that it becane "www" while the domain remained myhostname.com so that the FQDN became www.myhostname.com and then i "reset" my hosts file. I also changed the NS1 and NS2 from www.myhostname.com.myhostname.com to www.myhostname.com (Ignore this if you want. Gonna make a new NS later). But the following links still point to the old and wrong entry-> www.myhostname.com.myhostname.com

Under the Management "tab"....
Everything in the System Config Folder, the Form Designer Folder and the Server Folder and the link for the Recycle Bin. They all point to the old and wrong URL whereas all the other links point to the new and updated one...

You can change the URL in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php.
