    What to do, what to do.....

    Is there anything that can be done to rebuild CPANEL USER FILES (the ones that contain the username, ip, reseller/owner, etc) if all I have is the /home/ drives for them......

    My datacenter reinstalled cpanel, therefore all of the /usr/ files for cpanel were cleared... Im stuck in a shit hole, and i dont think its going to be easy to get out..

    any info would be greatly appreciated.

    That's probably because those users and groups have not been recreated on the system.

    Any time a system is rebuilt the accounts also need to be recreated. Check in /etc/passwd and you'll probably see that the user ids are not in there.

    Yep, that was the prob. I realized that about 5 mins after I posted, and ran the rebuildetcpasswd script.
