I got the following message when I do config tests:
httpd: bad user name XXX

I recently removed the user XXX, and when apache restarted it crashed saying "httpd: bad user name XXX", in httpd.conf the user XXX no longer exists so to solve this I re-added XXX.

Is there anyway to permanently remove this bug?

Im running:
- RedHatLinux 7.3
- Latest Stable WHM
- Latest Apache 1.3.28 After Zombie Bug Update

It wasn't there. CPanel/WHM is doing its job when it deletes.
I checked /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf (no entry for the domain as expected)

I have noticed this a lot recently - a reboot fixes the problem but there must be a better solution.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks :)
