Failed compilation erases backups..

    My compile failed due to a i386 xen installation running under a x86_64 host (which causes uname -m to return x86_64, which causes openssl compilation to fail).
    Not a problem, I've tweaked my uname to return i386, which is fine. Only thing is... my /root/ispconfig directory is already deleted... And no backup in sight.. :-(

    Please modify setup2 to *not* delete the install_ispconfig directory if failed, or (even better) place the backups in another directory, outside the install_ispconfig, which is perhaps a bad place to begin with.. ;-)


    (edit: setup2 instead of setup1 of course)

    Just run:

    mkdir /root/ispconfig

    and unpack the installer tar.gz file again and execute setup.

    The content of /root/ispconfig is not needed for a upgrade, just the directory must exist.

    Thanks.. but still the install directory gets deleted on any error, which is very frustrating if you have to compile a couple of times, due to wrong arch-settings, linking error and/or optional but missing and intented perl-modules for spamassassin.

    Anyway, it's working again now. :D
