Reset cPanel (WHM) Initial configuration

Have you configured dedicated server with cPanel (WHM) for a client but would like to reset WHM initial configuration wizard to allow client to run the wizard as if you never logged in to WHM and cPanel was just installed?

You can reset initial WHM configuration by running the following shell command as root:

#rm -rf /etc/.whostmgrft

This will clear all basic WHM configuration you may have changed.

Looking for fully managed server to give you peace of mind?
