    Hi all,

    I had a disk failure on the drive that held my /home directory. No problem, I removed the old drive, and used the opportunity to replace it with a larger one. It's mounted as /home, but now WHM and cPanel are completely inaccessible. If I visit my site, I can see the blue/green Great Success, but I can't do anything else. All connections to x.x.x.x:2086 fail. What do I need to load onto the home directory to get WHM to work again? Already tried /scripts/upcp --force and a complete cpanel reinstall.

    I don't have to do an OS reload for something so simple, do I?

    Did you move all the old /home data partition back to your new /home partition? Are you sure /home was the only partition being hosted on that disk?

    Im afraid that you will need to re-install cpanel. I suggest to do a clean cPanel installation.
