    Hi,

    By mistake I deleted the /home/username/etc folder of a customer account. Now his account is unable to create new e-mail accounts through cPanel. After filling the form with the e-mail address and password, cPanel sais the /home/username/etc/passwd does not exist.

    How can I re-generate this /home/username/etc folder so e-mail operations can work again?

    Do you have a recent backup available?

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply. The backup copies I have the folder etc is already absent. So I need a way of re-generating it.
