    I noticed that whenever an account (non reseller) is deleted via WHM, you can login to WHM as root with the following:

    username: deleted_account_username
    password: root_password

    WHM 6.4.2
    Cpanel 6.4.2-S75
    RedHat 7.3

    You'll find that you can log into your WHM with *any* username, in fact any word or nothing at all as the username, and the root password.

    The only thing required to access the root WHM is the root password :)

    Yes, I understand that ......

    But what concerns me is that WebHost Manager still recognizes the deleted username

    It is really not recognizing the deleted username. Just that if you enter anything or nothing with the root password at WHM prompt, you will get into root whm.

    Does not matter if it is a username or not.

    This is both on and off topic.

    I've found that when you delete a user's account, it doesn't appear to delete their MySQL user names. I ran into this when I totally removed a client's account (to redo it) and when it was created again, the MySQL portion was partially done for me.

    I don't know what else might be missed by the Terminate an Account but this was one thing I found.

    Well.... just to add my $0.02 ...

    you will STILL find info and things of deletes domains on :

    /usr/local/frontpage/*.cnf
    /var/cpanel/bandwidth/*
    /etc/valiases/*
    /etc/vfilters/*
    /etc/proftpd/*_logs
    /etc/httpd/domlogs/*
    /var/cpanel/neomail/*-session-*
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/interchange/etc/*
    /usr/share/ssl/private/* (if an ssl account...)

    then in /var/cpanel/*.accts (deleted resellers, but anyway this is good to keep, sometimes you could delete a reseller accidentally...)

    Also ... look on your /backup dir :D

    Maybe Nick could make some "clean me please" script.
    then you can clean your server (remove all this unwanted files of all that deleted accounts ...)

    Regards :rolleyes:

    Nope, but you can do it ... :p

    I'm lazy...
    and actually have lots of tickets and feature requests still waiting ... so why should I add another one? hehe... :rolleyes:

    Btw... I liked a lot more Bugzilla than the actual ticket/feature system...
