I have a client running the eggdrop program. I suspended his account in WHM, but the program continues to run. I then went in as root and did this:

mv /home/username /home/usernamebak

Basically changed the name of the users main directory so it would break any script path. It still kept running...

I also went into the WHM under Background Process Killer and I have all of the options checked. I haven't ever recieved any emails notifying me that eggrop was running.

Then I changed the permissions on the /home/username folder to zero. Still ran.

Any ideas of how to get that eggdrop program perminantly shut down besides deleting the account?

Did you change permissions on the folder recursively?

chmod 0000 -R /home/USERNAME

Then get the PID for &eggdrop& and kill it.....
(killall -9 eggdrop should actually do it)

And then as long as the account is suspended, you can deal with the situation however you'd like.
