    Hey Guys

    Just freshly installed CPanel and got the majority of a site up. I was browsing some faster FTP Clients (inbrowser, indep, etc) and was just doing some tests and accidentally the delete button got hit with the wrong folders selcted!!! SHIZA!

    Is there anyway to restore the files from server w/ no back up ?
    I can vaguely remeber someway to SSH in and restor from log.
    I'm not sure though.
    Any help is greatly appreciated !!
    Thanks guys!

    -Sean

    Delete means delete. Never test without a net. Sorry can't help more.

    The files are not really deleted, and actually there is no way to delete data, as long as the space on the harddrive was not over written by new data you can still get the "deleted" files.
