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:

Code:
/scripts/fixvaliases
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.
