    I had a OS crash. Unfortunately i don't have recent cpbackups, the ones I have are two months old. So I installed a new drive, reinstalled the OS + cpanel and have the old drive mounted to copy data off of it. Everything in the /home dir is there. I believe have everything except the /etc folder backuped up.

    What is the best way to restore my accounts? Can it be done with only the home dirs?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    If the old drive has EVERYTHING, including ALL folders/paths that should be on a primary drive on a cpanel server you might be able to treat this as a manual cpanel server transfer, that is copying entire folders and certain files, but if you are missing some folders it might not be possible to restore the server without doing some custom work. Is this old drive the exact copy of the drive before it crashed or is it partial or just gz/pax/tar packages ?
