    I have a very big problem, my server was attacked and the operating system was lost. Already it was reinstalled everything and it is working, the problem is that it could not be backed up and I only have with the old HOME directory with all the sites inside. How can i create cpmove files to recover sites? Or is there any other way to restore all user and sites from the original home directories?


    The server is already working with cpanel configured as a fresh install, but with the same general configuration as the previous one, I only need to restore the sites, some idea, it is urgent, thank you very much!

    Thanks
    Ramiro

    The old hard drive is connected and accessible on the server, I have all the complete files

    If the websites has only static contents you can create a new account for every website using cpanel and then copy the user home folder manually from the other harddisk and make sure from folder owner.

    but the problem is if the website has data stored in the database like mysql, so you need to have mysql data folder ...

    do you have the databases data folder?

    Hello,

    Restoring accounts without backups is unsupported, however the following thread may help in situations where backups are not available:

    Recover server from Disk Image

    Thank you.
