DocumentRoot changed for new accounts

For some reason, the document root directory that cPanel makes when creating a new account has changed.

It used to create /home/<domain username>/public_html/

Now it is creating /home/<primary domain>/<mount point>/<domain username>/public_html/

The <mount point> is something I made months ago and points to another directory for convenience. New accounts were made after that with no issue, so it doesn't seem like a factor.

In WHM -> Server Configuration -> Basic cPanel and WHM Setup it still shows /home as the default directory.

Does anyone know what might have caused this, or where the setting is to chagne it back?

The problem seems to have fixed itself.

I forced an update of cPanel and rebooted the server and everything seems to be fine now. Not sure what the problem was or how it originated, but that seems to have fixed it.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
