Corrupted PSA database - need to reinstall

    Hi there.

    I managed to overwrite the psa database with an old (version 9) copy, rendering the v10 control panel fairly useless.

    Reckon I need to do a clean install to get it back up.

    Running the installer, it still thinks it is all installed fine and doesn't allow me to progress past the "Main components list for Parallels Plesk Panel" page.

    How can I do a full reinstall of the Plesk 10 panel?

    Debian 5, Plesk 10.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Igor.

    (and sorry for posting in the wrong forum).

    So can I use /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller to re-install the psa database?

    Database cannot be reinstalled - database can be upgraded only.

    Still having issues with this.

    Trying to re-install from scratch but the having problems with the database.

    If I remove the psa database completely the installer fails with this:

    I found a db dump from a previous upgrade a couple of days ago, restored this to the psa table and tried again.

    This time it fails with this:
    So it seems I can't win.
    There must be a way to make the installer think this is a completely fresh install and not try to restore or upgrade anything - just install Plesk.

    Any suggestions most welcome.

    PS - how can I move this post to the right forum?
