    Hello,
    Today my hd failed and will not boot into the OS. My host was able to boot using a knoppix cd and mounted the HDs. The problem is that I only have ssh access and no scripts are working because it is not booting from the standard OS. That includes mysql and cpbackup. When I attempt to run cpbackup from the normal directory it gives me this

    "Can't locate cPScript/cPanelFunctions.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/ perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 / usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl . /scripts) at /mnt/olddrive/scripts/cpbackup line 16.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /mnt/olddrive/scripts/cpbackup line 16."

    Is there any way to backup the accounts and databases from this point. I am already in the process of copying over the entire home directory so that once I get the accounts backed up it should just fall into place as far as the home directory goes.

    Thank You

    p.s. sorry if I seem a bit incoherent, got home from work to find this and been working for 6 hours on this.

    Ok, just had an idea. What if I were to use another server to backup the information. By my understanding whm is able to connect to another server via ssh to retreive account information (correct me if I am wrong here) to which I could point the other server to the new directory, basically /mnt/olddrive instead of /. My current server being default as far as location is concerned it should be able to find the applicable information and back it up then it would just be a matter of transfering it to my server again once the new hard drive is put in place. Of course this is just theory in my part and I would somehow need to be able to gain access to a second server running whm/cpanel. Any ideas on that?
