##### Step "-1" - Undoing Step 1 if necessary
If something went wrong during Step 1, it can leave things in an inconsistent
state. Here's how to undo it without starting over from scratch. The goal is
to remove things that boss-install checks on, so it can be run again to put
the Emulab database and directories into initial conditions.
* Remove users, groups, and directories set up by boss-install.
pw userdel -n elabman -r
pw userdel -n elabckup -r
ssh -n ops pw userdel -n elabman -r
ssh -n ops pw userdel -n elabckup -r
ls -l /users /proj /groups
rm -r /proj/* /groups/*
pw groupdel -n emulab-ops
ls -l /usr/testbed/{expwork,*/proj}
rm -r /usr/testbed/expwork/* /usr/testbed/*/proj/*
ls -l /usr/testbed/{expwork,*/proj}
* Remove user and group from the elabman "Create First Project" pages.
set me = *your-login*
pw userdel -n $me -r
pw groupdel -n testbed
ls -l /users /proj /groups
* Kill the database.
mysql -e "drop database tbdb"
* Run boss-install, checking particularly on the success of these tasks:
. Setting up database
. Setting up initial user (elabman)
. Setting up checkup user (elabckup)
. Setting up system experiments
Now you can go back to Step 1 with the first login as 'elabman' and try again.
##### Step 2 - Setup web sql editor
