    Hey everybody,

    I tried updating my server from ISPConfig 2.2.31 to the new version and my internet connection broke, so I logged back in via ssh and removed the install_ispconfig directory and started everything all over again, but now I am only getting the option in the beginning where it says that a new version of ispconfig is being installed and it is not an update anymore!

    I don't want anything being lossed or erased, what can I do to just start the update all over again?

    Thanks for your help.

    after reading through the forums, I did figure out that I had to create a /root/ispconfig/ directory to get back to the update. Now, I did all that but ISPConfig isn't running anymore. Websites and Apache still work, but I can't get the ISPConfig Interface to work. Here is what it said after the update

    Herzlichen Glueckwunsch! Ihr ISPConfig-System ist jetzt installiert. Falls Sie Quota nachinstalliert haben, fuehren Sie noch die in der Installationsanleitung beschriebenen Schritte durch. Ansonsten ist Ihr System jetzt ohne Reboot einsatzbereit.
    
    
    Even running /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart didn't work and it gives me pretty much the same error as above.

    Can anybody help? Thanks a lot.

    Take a look at the /tmp directory, you should find a backup of the ispconfig files and a backup of the database as .sql file there from the first update attempt. You should restore the backups and sql dump as your system database was vanished as you run the setup script the second time withot recreating the /root/ispconfig directory and it can not be restored by running setup again.

    Hello Till,

    I only have an update from this morning but not yesterday, and yesterday I did the update. Then I found another tar from 2009-04-04, where I updated to 2.2.31, but I don't know if I should be using this. What steps would I have to take exactly to get it to work again?

    I did find 3 files in my /tmp/ directory

    home_admispconfig_04_04_2009__10_31_54.tar.gz (/home/admispconfig/)
    root_ispconfig_04_04_2009__10_31_54.tar.gz (/root/ispconfig/)
    existing_db_04_04_2009__10_31_54.sql (/var/lib/mysql/ispconfig/)

    ...now as far as I understand I need to unpack the tar's and just copy them to the appropriate directory, what about the sql file? How do I manage to get rid of the current ispconfig database and replace it with the sql backup?

    After I have copied everything back, can I just start the update to the current ispconfig 2 version again?

    Thanks for your help.

    Fan anybody tell me if I can copy the backup files and overwrite the existing or do I have to erase the /root/ispconfig and admispconfig folders first? How can I get the backup sql file back in the ispconfig database?

    I'd be thankful if anybody could help me out.
