    Hey, I've been having trouble with a PostNuke I set up, I deleted my admin account... yeah... it sucked. And I can't restore it, the only documentation for doing this is for phpNuke. So I want to nuke my cPanel and start all over again. How can I do this? (Just so you know, the support for restoring the account has all been to edit the Nuke-authors table, which PostNukes do not have, so thats not an option). If you know how to format the cPanel, and restore it to what it was when it was first started, I would be very grateful, or if you legitimately know how to restore the account, for PostNuke, not phpNuke.
    Thanks for your time.

    What do you mean by format ? Just delete the files assossiated the program, including the database and re-create it from a backup ( you do have a backup right ? ).

    I mean like, the equivalent of nuking ones hard drive, but instead with cPanel. Like, it would delete all the files on the server, all the MySQL Databases etc, all the settings, everything, back to what it was when you logged on for the very first time... ever.

    You have root access to this server?

    If so, just log into WHM and delete all the accounts and recreate them.

    If you don't have physical access to the machine, contact your provider and request an OS restore. Thats a little overkill, but its what you want.
