    hi guys
    how can I reload the database back into freshly installed ispconfig taken from old installation?

    I found the backup menu and I created sdb file but I can't find in documentation where to restore it back

    With phpMyAdmin or the mySQL commandline client. But restoring the database will not restore the complete ISPConfig system, because you have to restore also several config files, /etc/passwd, /etc/sahdow, /etc/group and the main hosting directory /home/www or /var/www

    There is no way to restore it in the controlpanel interface. Unpack it with the "unzip" command and restore the .sql file inside with phpMyAdmin or the mySQL commandline client.
