Hi everyone,

I did a lot of pinching around with all the settings just to get a hang of WHM and now some of the features such as creating of new accounts and DNS aren't working properly due to some of those changes. So how can I restore all the settings to their original state?

You can obtain some semblance of original configuration state by moving the cpanel.config fiel out of the way, then restarting cPanel:

Code:
# mv /var/cpanel/cpanel.config /var/cpanel/cpanel.config.backup
# service cpanel restart
That will only reset values for the Tweak Settings interface. There is no way to return to default values for the majority of the product.
