cPanel has a bunch of scripts in the /scripts folder.

For most of them, you can run: /scripts/script_name_here --help to see what the script does. (Except for upcp... --help is not available for it.)


/scripts/whowns - Tells you which cPanel account owns the specified domain.

/scripts/upcp --force - Updates cPanel (use with caution)

/scripts/clear_orphaned_virtfs_mounts --clearall - Cleans the virtfs folders for users who no longer exist or who no longer use a jailed shell environment.

/scripts/fixquotas –force - Rebuilds disk quotas (helpful when something is showing incorrect usage.)

/scripts/updatenameserverips - Forces the nameserver record report to run.


/usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts - Checks All service SSL certificates.

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/autossl_check --user=$usernamehere - force Auto-SSL to check a specific account

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/autossl_check_cpstore_queue --force - forces Auto-SSL to check the queue at the cPanel store.

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force - force a manual backup

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/cpbackup - run a legacy backup

/scripts/pkgacct user - backs up the entire specified cPanel account, including databases, e-mail, settings, etc. Replace "user" with the cPanel username to backup.

/scripts/backups_clean_metadata_for_missing_backups - Clean backup metadata. Run this after manually deleting a backup from /backup

Mail Scripts :
/scripts/generate_maildirsize --confirm --allaccounts --verbose $USER - fix mail sizes showing incorrectly

/scripts/mailperm - fix mail permissions on cPanel

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/remove_dovecot_index_files --user username --all --verbose - rebuild dovecot indexes

Check RPMs and possibly re-install:

Re-Build Dovecot indexes :
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/remove_dovecot_index_files --user $cPanel_user --all --verbose

Database Grants
Weird database permission/authentication issues? Try restoring the database grants:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/restoregrants --cpuser=$cpuser --db=mysql --all
