    Does uninstall need to be run from /tmp?

    [[email protected] ~/ispconfig]$ ./uninstall
    No results found![[email protected] ~/ispconfig]$

    This is my error when I attempt to uninstall from /root/ispconfig/uninstall

    cd /root/ispconfig

    If this wont work, you can uninstall ISPConfig by executing:

    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server stop
    rm -rf /home/admispconfig
    rm -rf /root/ispconfig

    Good times.. I am reinstalling... Something funky happened and ISPConfig was no longer able to make changes to the web root and shadow files and countless other things... Probably my fault. Tweak it 'til it breaks, that's my motto.

    Have you created the database "db_ispconfig" manually?

    At that point, no. I mistakenly omitted a crucial step in the forced uninstall I had to perform: I did not drop the previous database.

    After the reinstall, I saw my error and decided to go back to using a database (restore from backup) from when everything was flowers & butterflies.

    The database reversion worked quite well. I am sure it is safe to ignore this error, however, I am curious as to it's origin.

    If the ISPConfig installer is not run in update mode, it expects to be able to create the database itself.
