    All of my web/domain forwarders just magically disappeared in WHM. Where are they stored? How do I restore them?

    I'm unaware of WHM showing these. They are typically in cPanel > Forwarders area instead of WHM.

    The files that house the forwarders are /etc/valiases in root SSH and each domain has a file there.

    You might try running this command in case the issue is being caused by improper permissions:

    If that doesn't work and you aren't seeing any forwarders listed in the files in question, you can check your backups if you are saving the configuration files and have WHM > Backup > Configure Backup enabled. These would be in /pathtobackup/cpbackup/daily|weekly|monthly/dirs/_etc_valiases

    Of note, please replace pathtobackup with the path to the backup, and select daily, weekly or monthly for the folder to check.
