    Hey all,

    I have this strange issue this morning which I have not yet been able to resolve. All zone files seem to be missing when using the edit zone function in Web Host Manager. I do have root to the server and have checked the following as well as issued the following commands:

    grep OWNER /var/cpanel/users/* (to ensure ownership of files are set correctly)
    ls /var/named (to ensure zone files exist)
    /scripts/rebuildcpusers

    Im sure I am missing something simple but cant seem to figure it out. No changes have been made to the server recently as this is a shared production server.

    Please Assist.

    Additionally, new users are not added to /etc/passwd nor are their home directories setup

    root@biz75 [~]# grep mattha5 /etc/passwd
    root@biz75 [~]#

    Well, something has definitely updated which resulted in both the issues. I would recommend you to have someone look into the server especially your webhosting company.

    Im with the hosting company, unfortunately our senior system administrator is currently unavailable and I have researched through the history and do not see anything suspicous as well as any recent cpanel updates
