    I get an error message when trying to access cPanel using the account list link in WHM.

    The error is:

    ====
    Internal Server Error
    500

    exit level [die] [pid=1379] (Attempting to drop privileges to root.)

    =====

    Tweak Settings is properly set to allow Root etc.

    Thanks for any ideas !!

    Hello,

    Could you verify if multiple UID zero users exist on this system? You can check with a command such as:

    Code:
    grep 0:0 /etc/passwd
    Thank you.
