    Hello,

    A cpanel user config file is missing I am unable to file the file in /var/cpanel/users/username

    What can I do ( I don't want to recreate the account as I don't want any data loss)

    Go to your backup dirs folder and grab it from your backups and cp it to the correct place.

    I.e. on my system it would be

    cp /backup/cpbackup/daily/dirs/_var_cpanel/users/joe /var/cpanel/users/joe
