    What methods or procedures, if any, does cPanel recommend when sanitizing a server before the end of a hardware lease that includes a license. Assume the lessors are not trusted and that the data, including logs and meta, must not be recoverable.

    Thank you both. I do not have physical access to the server but will examine both suggestions. The current intention is to leave an empty /home partition that has been zeroed, an unmounted and zeroed backup drive, along with a lack of logs in a functioning cPanel install.

    Failing that, I'll melt it down remotely or obliterate from orbit :).
