    How to kill an account that isn\'t in the list accounts list?

    I want to delete an account demo.doman.com but it doesn\'t show up anywhere but it does exists. I can even login to the cpanel but I want to DELETE/KILL it...

    Help please.

    in the /scripts dir (ssh) there is a file called killact I think.

    run:

    ./killact

    and that should do what you want

    Nope!

    I want to make demo.domain.com but WHM says it allready exists. One time all files were gone from the list accounts screen but that was repaired but we forgot demo.domain.com

    When I do /scripts/killaccts demo.domain.com it says that not all info could be found so my question is were I can deleta all traces of demo.domain.com so I can make a new one.

    Thank you.

    You would probably want to start by deleting the domain\'s http.conf entry, as well as the domain\'s zone file entry. Since you mentioned the account was in the form of demo.domain.com, have you checked whether it appears under subdomains in the domain.com cpanel? If it does, all you would have to do is remove it from there.

    I think you don\'t understand it right. This is not about a subdomain but a REAL account named demo.domain.com

    It\'s for a demo account from our cpanel.
    I can\'t create because it allready exists but were can I delete it ???

    Can anybody help me with this please???

    Hi nick,

    ./killact didn\'t work (can\'t find ....) in the first place and that\'s why I posted this message.
    :P
