    The root section has a folder named scripts for WHM/Cpanel and other aspects of maintaining your server for your website right? Trying this ssh command,user@domain[~] cd /scripts, it told no such file or directory.

    How can I re install/recover this script directory? Should I contact our web host provider? Or I can recover/re-install/create it easily by myself?

    I am using CENTOS 6.6 x86_64 standard. I tried to restart apache from WHM and it hangs. Now my website and whm are not showing. Maybe it hangs because the script for restarting apache was already deleted.

    1. It's first important to determine how /usr/local/cpanel/scripts (what "/scripts" links to) was deleted so it does not happen again. Did you remove it manually? Or, did you simply notice it was removed?

    2. Do you have any backups of your filesystem available so the /scripts directory can be restored?

    Thank you.
