    I am having to reinstall my OS on a very active server that just went down, and they tell me that I can keep partitions without losing anything in them if I tell them which ones...

    I know I obviously need the one with /home...
    Can anyone tell me what others are necessary for cPanel/WHM?

    I appreciate the help...thanks a million in advance!

    You'll also probably want /usr and /var

    ... why on earth would you have to reinstall Linux? One of the good things about that operating system is you can fix just about anything without taking the machine down (save a kernel update that requires a quick restart).

    If you need me to hook you up with a good sys admin to try and pull you out of whatever mess you're in PM me with your contact info and I'll have him give you a call. Your data center folks also may be able to help.

    Good luck
