starting from scratch or keep on with issues

What would you do ?

I'm wonder what is the your opinion about that. I'm a new webmaster in charge of a e-commerce website. Previous webmaster has been fired. There are not too many products online and not too many customer yet.
Now i have issues because i don't really know the way my predecessor worked and because he didn't had the time to really finish his mission.
So what now ?
Should i start from scratch and then import the products and customers, or struggle with his code and pray to avoid any further issues.
How would you consider these situation ?

Wish you a successful year

Struggling with someone else's mess can turn out several different ways:

1) it will continue to be a mess with no resolve and you have to start over
2) over some time, it may resolve itself
or
3) you manage some resolve now, but upgrading or expanding in the future may be daunting, at best.

Given those choices, would you take door #4 - start over, taking in to account future needs (with little to no potential issues).
