    Do you have a backup of /etc/passwd, /etc/group and /etc/shadow?

    no I do not, I went into Ispconfig and used the database backup button and it downloaded a file called ( sysdb.sql ). I have found no way of restoring ispconfig with this file.

    I have now got everything set back up and will save those files for the future. what and how do I use them. I need some way of going to a fresh install and loading all settings websites emails etc without having to manually load them one by one.

    The sql dump does not include the passwords of the users. Without the files from /etc you can not restore the complete ispconfig setup.

    Have a look at this thraed for detailed information which files and directories are needed:
