    Performing some cleanup I accidentally had a space in my command

    Code:
    rm apache.backup * -rf
    Fortunately I caught it immediately when I realized it was taking too long. Unfortunately I lost parts of the cPanel folder and apache. Attempting a rebuild the /scripts folder which must be symlinked is now missing. ok great, pulled the cPanel install file and attempt a reinstall.

    Code:
    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest
    sh latest --force
    Results in:
    Yes, 5.1 is installed on this VPS because the client requires the older version. Question is, how do I get cPanel reinstalled with MySQL 5.1 on the server?

    I attempted to place a support ticket but because scripts folder is gone and cPanel is no longer functional I cannot acquire my support ID for the VPS. ok, so now I put in a support ticket via the contact page on cpanel.net which results in an email back:

    So I need to get this back up and running. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Another workaround, it possible to download and install cPanel 11.38?

    Due to the overwhelming response I am going to bite the bullet and force an update with cpanel.config set for 5.5 This should be fun.

    Fortunately cPanel was smartly able to rebuild everything with the information in /var/cpanel and I convinced the client to move to MySQL 5.5.

    Thank you.
