    How would I reset my website files. I messed something up and I didn't have backups. Is there any way to start fresh with new files in the root?

    if you don't have anything you want to save - e.g. mail or database - just terminate account and create new.

    Oh, you are not server administrator.. If you are cpanel user, simply use File Manager to delete everything inside public_html (do not touch any other folders, do not delete public_html either!).

    Hello :)

    It's not possible to reset an account without root access to the system. You can ask your hosting provider to complete this for you, or simply remove all files/directories that are stored within the public_html directory.

    Thank you.
