    Hi,

    It appears that one of my files under /var/cpanel/userdata was regenerated.
    My question is when does it get regenerated and how can I prevent that?

    Thanks!

    Chris

    Hello :)

    Could you specify which file was regenerated or reset? The changes made to these files should remain preserved (unless it's a cached file of some sort).

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    sure, it was the /var/cpanel/userdata/<account name>/<domain name> so for example
    /var/cpanel/userdata/mysite/mysite.com

    What entry was modified in this file? Were any other actions performed before it happened?

    Thank you.
