Can we recreate the "anonymous" user on AEM 6.3, if accidentally deleted, using a curl command?

Looking here: https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/experience-manager-64/administering/operations/curl.html#user...

Try to re-start your instance, it should be re-created on starting the instance.

Anonymous user is special and if you accidentally delete the user, it will be re-created upon startup.

@ChitraMadan  mentioned, the anonymous user will be re-created on server restart. If it is publisher, i was facing issue while accessing the package manager after the re-creation. Refer https://www.albinsblog.com/2020/06/crxde-and-package-manager-is-not-accessible-InitServlet-error-whi... for more details.

As mentioned by @ChitraMadan it will be re-created again.

Please check the details of each type of user at https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/experience-manager-64/administering/security/security.html

I too have accidently disabled the anonymous user but not deleted it. following your solution, i restarted the instance but still not getting login screen.

How to resolve it now. Any curl command or any post method or replication from publisher will help?
