    Which file contains domain owners for parked and addon domains?

    I have a user that apperantly attempted to park a domain on an addon domain and this failed however cPanel insists that that domain exists and that it is owned, refuseing to allow it to be added as a parked domain.

    Ive looked in /etc /usr/local/cpanel /var/cpanel but cant find any files containing the domain name.

    which one would it be located in?

    Error:
    <domain name removed> is owned by another user.

    Thanks ;)

    look in /var/cpanel/users/<name domain owned by> and edit the file and remove the domain from that file

    Dave,

    thanks for the reply, i tried looking there also and not finding it

    root@w2 [/var/cpanel/users]# cat ./* | grep -i goingtochurch
    root@w2 [/var/cpanel/users]#

    The only error cPanel gives when you try to park the domain as the user is "is owned by another user" but nothing really usefull.

    any other ideas were it could be stored?

    I'm also having this problem today and cannot trace the "other user"

    cat ./* | grep -i domain.com

    returns blank under /var/cpanel/users and /var/cpanel


    ran /scripts/updateuserdomains numerous times

    cleared out all "Dns=" lines from the main account's /var/cpanel/user file (except the main domain's dns line)
