    1 account has this listed:
    /bin/false

    while all the other accounts listed have (disabled)

    Is there a raw file i can edit via ssh to change this to disabled. Also, what does this mean?
    Why is this being reported this way?

    Anyone have any ideas that could assist me?

    /bin/false is safe and means they don't have any shell access ...

    Whenever you suspend an account in Cpanel, it sets the shell to /bin/false.

    You can manually edit the shells for all accounts when logged in as root by SSH
    and edit the file /etc/passwd
