    Hello,
    I've more than 300 accounts working in Cpanel.
    I'm so afraid about the kernal panic or system damage cause i don't take an internally full backup of the accounts.

    More Explain: what the necessary configuration files i will using it after restore /home directories.
    Like /etc/userdomains, /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, .... etc ???

    Hello,

    It's not good idea to restored manually all configuration files. I will suggest you setup the offside backup of your all accounts so that you can restore all accounts from the offside backup

    Hello :)

    Restoring the /home directory manually is not supported or recommended. Instead, if you are going through the effort of backing up the entire /home directory, you should backup the accounts. The account backup archives generated through WHM include all of the data necessary to restore the account on a fresh installation of cPanel or another server with cPanel installed.

    Thank you.
