    It seems i have discovered that users are able to bypass addon domain/ subdomain limits. by removing the subfolders that are created and replacing them with linked dirs. it appears to be on freebsd and dissappear after nightly runs. I have one user that now has way more addons then he is supposed to... Can anyone verify this is the cause?

    What do you mean by 'linked dirs'?

    for example

    user: ttest
    domain tttest.com
    can "addon" domains

    he adds yahoo.com

    that creates a subdirectory /yahoo

    he removes
    rm -rf yahoo

    and does this from his public_html folder
    ln -s ./ yahoo/

    bingo he can now addon more domains!:eek:

    Go on, have a guess
    If it is a reproducable bug then you should log it as a bug in bugzilla so that cPanel is aware of the issue if you haven't done so already.
