Could you explain why you need to reinstall cPanel from scratch? It might be that you only need to fix one thing. Obviously, you should make account backups that are stored off the server if you are going to reformat and install cPanel onto a fresh machine.

Otherwise, if we know why you even are wanting to do this, we might be able to find a different tactic to take rather than wiping everything and starting anew.
