Description

This function deletes a cPanel account's Git™ repository.

 For more information about support for version control in cPanel & WHM, read our Git Version Control and Guide to Git documentation. 

  • When you call this function, the system permanently deletes the entire contents of the specified directory. You cannot recover this data after deletion.
  • You cannot use this function to delete any repositories that do not appear in the cache of repositories (for example, repositories that contain invalid characters or exist within cPanel-controlled directories).
