    Hi,

    I am not able to create new account in WHM and the process get stuck at

    Copying skel files from /root/cpanel3-skel/ to /home/*someuseraccount*

    The passw and group in /etc are created with the username but and files are copied to the /home/username and can be access to /~username/ but the process never ends.

    I am running WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.18.6-S24255

    ensure files exist within /root/cpanel3-skel/ and are all readable. :)

    then im at a loss, sorry. maybe dbl chk all files recursively in that folder? also, do you get any errors show up in your error logs? might have a clue there somewhere ...

    will it create accounts normaly with no files added to /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html ?

    Update -

    I've force a cp update to the Current tree and then make a Graceful Server Reboot because I had like 50 processes for quota update stuck for a few hours. This is a good thing since I had ConfigServer running their magic a few days ago.

    I am now using WHM 11.23.0 cPanel 11.23.1-C24654 and seems to be fine to run about 324 accounts. :)

    Hello,

    Did /scripts/upcp --force to resolve the issue.

    update - still no luck

    I tried forcing a cpanel update in whm instead of ssh. Still does not fix problem. My host can jus reset my VPS, but I'm afraid of it happening again after I take the time to load all my sites on there.

    Here's a few things to check:

    - Ensure the permissions are good to allow the root user to read these files in the skeleton directory

    - Check /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log when this issue arises for clues as to what may be causing this issue

    If you are still experiencing this issue after checking these items, you may want to let our technical analysts assist you: http://tickets.cPanel.net/submit
