    Hi there,

    I think I need "a little" help with my ISPConfig installation. I tried to upgrade from 2.2.10 to 2.2.11 when my putty lost its connection to the server *argh*

    I thought perhaps the setup would recognize it's current status, when being restarted, so I killed the hanging processes and restartet setup script. But that again resulted in a hangtime.
    As the next try also didn't work, I removed the /root/install_ispconfig directory...
    ... well, when I extracted the archive again and ran setup it didn't recognize my existing ISPConfig installation anymore :eek:

    The files in /home/admispconfig and /var/www/ are still there but /root/ispconfig is gone. What can I do??

    Thanks for your support.

    Ok, did it! After fixing a few things ISPConfig installed correctly and at the end of the process recognized the existing database.

    It seems like none of my work is lost.

    Thanks Falko and Till, you did a great job with that tool!

    By the way: I'm currently working on a comfortable backup-plugin/ script including server sync. Is there a list of which files are modified by ISPConfig?

    Thank you and good night.

    Just a small hint to prevent this, if you use the commandline tool "screen" you will be able to resume a shall session that was interrupted.

    Great to hear that.

    No, but I will try to make one:

    The named.conf file and the pri.xxxxx files which contain the DNS-data
    All files and folders in the document root

    For the location of the document root and bind, etc. have a look at the fields in the isp_server database table.

    I think thats all :) Please correct me if I forgot some files.

    thanks! That solved my problems!! :)

    (perhaps you could add a platform check to this stage of install script ? just a suggestion as more and more boxes now ship with x64 architecture)

    Thats no general x64 problem, so a platform check wont help. Its not even ISPConfig which causes this, it is a problem in the latest ClamAV versions, I hope they get it fixed so that clamav is able to compile on 64bit again without having to manipulate any symlinks.
