    Hi, following a hack in which all our databases were deleted, we have been able to restore all the client site databases from fresh backups, but I haven't been able to restore the dbispconfig database. I have a backup of dbispconfig, but it only contains data - no structure information. The update.php can't run because there's no dbispconfig, and install.php won't run because it thinks there's already an installation. I think if I could somehow recreate a virgin dbispconfig database, I could then import the content into it. Any suggestions for what to do? Thanks.

    import the install/sql/ispconfig3.sql file from ispconfig tar.gz, then delete all data but not the structure with phpmyadmin (truncate) and then import the actual data from your backup.

    That's done it. A couple of failed attempts, then I realised I that foreign key checks needed to be enabled. Thank you!
