Hi There,

Is it not good to have a cPanel Reset (Set back to default and fresh) option for cPanel End Users?

Then he can always make his cPanel again to a fresh cPanel if he needs to remove everything and start again.

Hey there! For an individual cPanel user, can you let me know the advantage of such a reset function over just deleting the content manually? This question does come up once in a while, but deleting the content and emails is usually all most users need to do to get back to a fresh start.

Yes. you are right. But sometimes cpanel will showing Other usages on cPanel > Disk Usage and that can not be removed. so that's why I suggest that option. Some users mistakenly deleted some files and they will get unknown errors sometimes and need to recreate the cpanels again to fix it.

That's a good point - however, depending on where exactly that other usage is, a user may or may not have control over it. For example, if an admin unzipped a backup file in /backup, the files in /backup/date/username/homedir would be owned by the user, but they wouldn't be able to remove those.

We would like a reset function too, our users are not advanced enough to do it manually, and they often delete the cpanel needed folders, causing extra headache for support.

There is a very old feature request for a reset option, but it only has 11 votes in 8 years:


At this point, I'm not aware of any plans to implement that.
