    I accidentally chowned /* vmail now I can't access websites. My server responds if I go via ip so ssh still works

    From what I've read I'm guessing I need to reinstall is that correct?

    If not how can I fix it?

    If so what would I need to do so I can use virtual machines on my server and ispconfig
    Would I install the vm manager of my choice then make a new container and install ispconfig on that?

    Are you able to access the webmail & other website?
    What error you are getting the error.log file of the web server?

    Did you do a recursive chown, or did you just chown everything in /. example:

    chown vmail /*

    can be repaired, because you changed just one folder level. But if you run e.g.:

    chown -R vmail /*

    then you will have to reinstall the server as all files and folders on the server are "chowned".
