ElectricCommander refuses to install in CentOS, can't find a log file.

Attempting to install ElectricCommander 4.2.3 on CentOS 6.4 produces an error that it can't find an Apache log. Looking at the log file of the install, it appears Commander is trying to upgrade, but I deleted all the files in /opt/electriccloud/electriccommander. ??

Deleting the files in that folder is not the correct way to uninstall, but if you did this, what is happening is that the installer is checking for the existence of a number of commander* files in /etc/init.d. If it finds them, it assumes that you are performing an upgrade, and not a clean install. Delete the files:

 sudo rm -f /etc/init.d/commander*

...and run the installer again. It should work fine now.

... and always use /opt/electriccloud/electriccommander/uninstall to remove EC from your system.
