    Hello all,

    I just 'broke' one of my accounts. I believe I did this when trying to assign an IP address to it in WHM. Does anyone know how to find out why an account is broken. I realise it "may appear down from some locations until the dns has propgated to all nameservers on the internet". However, I was just wondering is there an obvious step-by-step to take to find out the cause of a broken account?

    btw I don't want to delete and recreate the account if I can help it.

    Cheers,

    volume.

    Make sure the dns zone file and the httpd.conf entry have the correct new IP.

    Thanks for your reply Haze.

    I'd checked the httpd.conf last night [which was all ok], but didn't know where to go from there.
    Had a look at the DNS Zone today and yes, somehow the record has been garbbled and referenced to another domain entirely.

    Once that was corrected; web and mail stuff all back in action. :)

    Thanks again,

    volume
