    You should contact your data center for help and request a reload. Hopefully you have backups of user files and consider hiring an administrator to setup / secure your server prior to setting up user accounts again.

    You have deleted major system files. You won't be able to SSH to the server, and now many services/applications are broken including Exim, Perl and modules. You must contact your host and ask them to either copy the deleted files or do OS reload.

    Go on, have a guess
    An alternative to an OS reload may be to have a new OS+cPanel disk installed and mount the old drive as a slave and then migrate all the data from the old to the new system. This is relatively straightforward to do, but care is needed:

    I thing this folder, is only a virtual place for jailed shell users, right?
    But, obviously, removing everything you don't have knowlegment, it's not a good idea :)
