    Namaste!
    I have recently setup a VM and have installed cpanel successfully.

    I also have created additional domain in the server but while creating third domain, I am getting error.

    When i try to create a new account from whm (root login), i get:
    "A fatel error or timedout occured while processing this directive. [show]"

    This error is displayed in background and in lightbox or popup screen i can see:
    "Adding Entries to httpd.conf", in new account creation process and nothing happens. I tried multiple times to create new account.

    Now the strange part is, after seeing this error, if i try to create a new account again with same domain; i get following error:

    "
    Account Creation Status: failed
    (XID jbqjhs) A DNS entry for “example.com” already exists. You must remove this DNS entry from all servers in the DNS cluster to proceed.
    "

    Now I go to "Delete a DNS Zone", and delete the dns zone for the domain i was trying to create account. And again try to create the account. I get following error:
    "
    Account Creation Status: failed

    (XID sfsftb) This system already has an account named “example”.
    "

    Now this makes no sense, as cpanel was not able to create a new account and now first it said dns exists but no account was available. After I delete dns zone for the domain, then account appears in the account list. Finally deleting the account from the list, I am able to go to create a account option and repeat the process.

    I have repeated this process of deleting dns zone and account for multiple times and tried to create account but with zero successes.

    I have attached the first error i face while creating a new account.

    I need urgent help.

    Is the server properly setup? I see a message at top about quotas.

    I hope it should have been setup well.

    Is there anything you saw wrong?

    I was able to setup upto 2 accounts without this issue, please help me figureout what might have been missed.

    Yes, the message about quotas at top of your WebHost Manager. Have you rebooted yet?

    first repair fix quota with : /scripts/fixquotas

    Then review that you have not created that domain before, see . WHM -> DNS FUNCTIONS -> DELETE DNS ZONE

    If you can see the domain, delete

    Then re-create it with CREATE ACCOUNT
