    Hi, I get the following error when I try to create new account:

    Account Creation Status: failed
    Sorry, the home directory root /home does not exist. Please create it or change the HOMEDIR value in /etc/wwwacct.conf to a directory that does exist.

    /home directory is present and /etc/wwwacct.conf has the correct entry: HOMEDIR /home

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    Did you check the permissions, Please post the output of:

    PHP:
    ls -ld /home
    lsattr 
    -/home

    Hello :)

    It's possible the settings in "WHM >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" have not been saved properly. Please try browsing to this option, ensuring the options are configured, and click on "Save Changes".

    Thank you.
