    i am trying to transfer an account from one server to my server.

    however when it keeps telling me that there is an account with the same name on my server when trying to copy all the data over.

    I have delete the dns entries of the account on my server but the account name still appears in the ip useage etc and it's stopping me from doing a cpanel transfer from the other server to my server.

    does anyone know how i go about delete all records of the account name on my server....most likely it'll involve a ssh command

    thanks in advance

    The domain entry should be in one of the below listed files which is stopping you from transferring the domain. Check the below files.

    /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf << remove the VirtualHost entry for the domain.
    /etc/named.conf
    /etc/trueuserdomains
    /etc/userdomains
    /var/named/domainname.db << remove this file.
    /etc/valiases/domainname << remove this file.
    /var/cpanel/users/username << remove this file.

    Restart apache and named service. Start the transfer again and you should be good to go.
