    It doesn't work in every case

    Thanks for your reply but I had two accounts that used terminate account for removing,

    Unfotunately it seems user names shorter than 8 characters long will not be removed completely by terminate account

    I succeed to remove one of them by removing related files however the user name was deleted by cpanel (killacct) but the other with 6 character long couldn't be removed, I also used

    userdel username

    command but it returns &terminated&

    I deleted the user from

    /etc/passwd
    /etc/shadow
    /etc/group

    and all other related files due to cpanel such as /etc/proftpd/user, /etc/httpd/domlogs/domain, /etc/aliases/user and more

    And now everything is fine, Do you think that I have to do more?

    Thanks,

    Mike Rayner
