Hi Team
( while attempting to delete a cluster.)
I accidentally deleted /etc/pve
After doing this, I have no access through a browser to my proxmox
Fortunately, I noticed that the machines I created and in my possession are still active and nothing was deleted
I am afraid I do not have a backup of this file or anything similar.
I'm in serious trouble please help me what can do now?
