    yesterday I've installed ispconfig, everything seemed ok, except I couldn't access https://<host>:81 (getting "invalid signature" error under Firefox). Now I try to uninstall it running /root/ispconfig/uninstall, a I get:
    Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /root/ispconfig/scripts/lib/ on line 47
    No results found!
    It's because the whole ispconfig mysql db is empty!

    If not by /root/ispconfig/uninstall, how to uninstall it?

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

    and then delete the ispconfig mysql database.

    after 2nd installation I found a bug in the installer - it doesn't accept mysql passwords with a semicolon ";" (I guess qoutes are omitted). In one place it's OK (testing and creating db) but then it fails (creating tables).

    Do I need to report it somewhere or devolopers read this forum?

    This is a known problem. Please don't use special characters in your MySQL root password.
