    Hello,

    My server was recently hacked and i reinstalled OS with WHM-Cpanel in new disk, and connected hacked disk which contains my cpanel accounts via USB.

    What is the best way and how to restore those accounts and databases one by one to new system?

    How did they breach your system? Surely if they hacked the disk, you shouldn't connect the disk to your new account? :rolleyes:

    Hi @surroundsound

    Not only what @inteldigital mentioned but you might want to at least run a malware scan on the data prior to moving it - rsync would be your best bet for moving the data but depending on how it was compromised you risk having the same issue all over again. I would suggest enlisting the assistance of a qualified system administrator. If you don't have one you might find one here: Resources | cPanel Forums

    Thanks!
