    Hello friends all over the world.
    I am a newbie in linux/cpanel world.

    I purchased a VPS and installed a trial version of cpanel.

    I created a username and then deleted.
    Now I want to create that username again, and migrate the cpanel account from my hosting provider, but when I try to create the account again I receive this error:

    (XID 6gvuqk) The name of another account on this server has the same initial 8 characters as the given username (edenleaders). Each username’s first 8 characters must be unique.

    Please help me find and delete ALL the "leftovers"

    Thank you so much...

    Hello,

    Can you verify the specific steps you took when you initially created and deleted the user?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Do you see any entries leftover for that username in the /var/cpanel/users/ or /var/cpanel/userdata/ directories?

    Thank you.
