Help! Accidentally deleted cgi-bin

I deleted the cgi-bin folder in my root directory by accident and i'm getting an error on my website. This was done through FTP, so there's no recovering it and I don't yet have a backup to the website. Is there anything I can do to replace the file? Restarting the whole process is not out of the question as I just started setting up the website. 


Hi @jktlvm, thanks for posting.

There's no files in the cgi-bin by default. Any files necessary for your site in that folder would have been files that you uploaded. If you do not have a copy of those files, you can contact Support to see if they are able to assist with restoring them, otherwise you would need to recreate the files.
