    Most likely the best way to fix it is to contact your provider and ask them to fix it.

    Thanks QuietFinn. i kind off decided to delete the existing etc file and create the etc folder. i then created the domain.com folder in the etc folder and lastly i created the file passwd embedded in domain.com folder in the format etc/domain.com/passwd and wala everything worked fine.
