    I decided to manually remove ISPconfig according to instructions , that is to say:
    rm -rfv /root/ispconfig
    rm -vrf /home/admispconfig

    (BTW It's not that the software is no good, it is just totally OTT for a person of my skill level (i.e. not a lot of experience in running a server.).).

    That went fine.

    However, it took me 12 hours to notice that the removal had killed apache2 !

    I got apache2 working again by restoring the original apache 2 config file:-
    cd /etc/apache2
    rm -v apache2.conf
    cp -v apache2.conf.orig apache2.conf

    obviously , you'd want to check from the ispconfig install log that you have the backup file before you ...erm...remove apache2.conf ;-)
    if you restart apache, it will then work.

    I'm wondering what else is now kludged by the removal ???!!!

    To remove ISPConfig, you would have to run the script /root/ispconfig/uninstall

    Removing just the directories will not remove the cronjobs and other configurations added by ISPConfig.
