Hi @digitalGiantSquid,

Unfortunately, in these situations, there is nothing to do except restore from a backup or snapshot. What you’ve actually done is removed the OS’s folder, every command such as cd, rm, mv, cp, etc. has bee removed from the server. That’s why you can execute anything.

As said, best and only option would be to resort to a backup.
