    I noticed that one of the domains on my server was way over quota. I executed the following command as root to get a list of all the files owned by this user to see if we could safely free up some their space:

    find / -type f -user *username*

    This user is not a reseller, does not have shell access, does not have root access and rarely ever even logs in to his account.

    It seems that all the files related to my recent Apache build are owned by this user...but I was logged in to WHM as root when I ran easyapache to rebuild Apache. I have save the ouput of the above command to a file (see attached).

    Why would this be hapening? It does not appear to be a hack, it is just strange and these files are being counted towards his quota.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?
