Hi there,
I am running a Fedora OS on a VDS and using WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.8.1-R113
Fedora i686 - WHM X v3.1.0.

When i try to add a user acct, i get the following error:
Code:
Changing password for abcabcc
Password for abcabcc has been changed
Keeping Shell Access (y)
Copying skel files from /root/cpanel3-skel/ to /home/abcabcc/


Could not create /home/abcabcc/mail/inbox: Permission denied 

Added Entries to httpd.conf
Bind reconfiguring on xeon using rndc
Added Named File
/home/abcabcc/public_html does not exist or is not a directory! 	


Restarting apache
Ftp Password Files synced
Notifcation => [email protected] via EMAIL [level => 3]
Vhost Passwords synced
wwwacct creation finished

Account Creation Complete!!!
This is what the user folder looks like:
Code:
[email protected] [/home/abcabcc]# ls -la
total 8
drwx------   2 root root 4096 Jan 29 21:23 ./
drwx--x--x  28 root root 4096 Jan 29 21:23 ../
----------   1 root root    0 Jan 29 21:29 .bash_logout
Also when i create any user acct in ssh, it assigns root ownership. I tried changing it manually using chown and chgrp, and it still remains root ownership:
Code:
[email protected] [/home]# ls -la
total 112
drwx--x--x  28 root     root     4096 Jan 29 21:23 ./

Clients ( whose ownership is root) also complains they get the following error when they ssh in:

Code:
login as: cristian
[email protected]'s password:
Could not chdir to home directory /home/cristian: Permission denied
-bash: /home/cristian/.bash_profile: Permission denied
-bash-2.05b$

Have your tried chown user:user usrer -R, do you get any errors??
Also Cpanel does not work at it best with i686 and if it is FC 5 then your problems have just started.

If you are on a VPS the key lies in the 'quotaugidlimit' QOS setting in Virtuozzo. You need to execute the below command on the main VPS server:-

vzctl set <VEID> --quotaugidlimit 500 --save
where,
<VEID> is the id of the VPS.
500 << you can set any number.

As I guess you wont have the access to the main VPS server, you will have to ask your Hosting company to do it for you.

I doubt its FC 5 coz last time i checked , the DC only provided fc3 vds template


Shekhar, i will pass that info to the DC and see if that will help

Thanks
