    OSX Server reinstall upgrading services.

    Re installed the mac mini yesterday to start from scratch as after tinkering with it i managed to screw it but when it's done its download and install it comes up saying "The following actions failed or were not attempted - Upgrading services" Your server needs to be restarted to complete setup. So restart it and it boots up asks for language, organisation and email address but nothing else. If i log in and open up the server UI and go to profile manager and switch it on it then says "Error Reading settings" (or something similar).

    Any body know why it is showing that error? or any body know how to run the very first initial setup again where it asks for host details etc?

    Tearing my hair out so any help would be great!
