    Hello, i'm a newbie in terms of managing the server/site but i must learn, since i'm about to receive a business site i have ordered and i need to be able to manage it.

    I probably, accidentaly deleted some files that are required for the server to function properly, as for example, i'm unable to make e-mail adresses right now (getting error of missing files).

    Since i don't have anything special on the server, am i able to somehow wipe my server/go back to when the files weren't deleted?

    I'll appreciate an explaination of how to do it.

    Hello,

    Can you clarify what error you are getting?

    If you are looking to wipe your server clean and start from new, you will need to reinstall your Operating System and then reinstall cPanel, you may need to contact your Hosting Provider or Datacenter to have this done.

    Sounds like you wiped some system files. Your forum profile has you listed as a Website Owner, assuming that's the case, @cPTerrance's suggestion to contact your Hosting Provider is your best way forward. Worse case, they can kill your account on the server and recreate it for you.
