    When trying to create an account i was receiving the following errors

    Missing HOST Config Line in /etc/wwwacct.conf

    Account Creation Complete!!!



    I have seen a few people that have run into this in this forum and the rackshack forums. Here is how i fixed it while waiting on a support request from cpanel.

    login via SSH and switch to root user

    then
    cd /etc/
    pico -w wwwacct.conf

    remove everything in there.

    hit CTRL+O to write the file and then save.
    exit pico ( i hit ctrl+z)

    log into WHM and click on "Edit Setup" and plug the information in there again.

    The reason i was getting this is because i installed tomcat and somehow there ended up being things in there like this


    ADDR 207.xx.xxx.xx
    ADDR-0 207.xx.xxx.xx

    FTPTYPE-0 proftpd
    HOMEDIR /home
    HOMEDIR-0 /home
    HOMEMATCH home
    HOMEMATCH-0 home
    HOST itserver.dxxxxxx.com
    HOST-0
    the -0 information was screwing it up and when i tried to remove only the duplicate lines, did not work.

    Removed everything and re-did the settings and BINGO!
