Hi,

I have attempted to add an addon domain to one of my cPanel accounts, but I get the following error:

Error from park wrapper: domain-to-addon.com is owned by another user.

I know that this has been previously owned by another user, but I don't know where I can find the file which I need to modify for this to work.

The old user account has been deleted, but for some reason it's still owning this domain.

Thanks,
Nick.

Go on, have a guess
Try searching all the user files in /var/cpanel/users/ for the domain. IF that's not the issue, have a trawl through httpd.conf

Hi Jonathan,

That was my first port-of-call before posting this thread, and I didn't find anything.

I will have a look through httpd.conf.

Edit: Nothing there. Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help,
Nick.

By the way, I have checked the usual places in WHM, such as "List Parked Domains", DNS zones and so on.

I have a nasty feeling that this old account (which previously owned the domain) had to be deleted manually, so it may be that one of the files which should have been deleted/modified may still be intact.

Regards.

Have you tried:

/scripts/updateuserdomains

Afterwhich, check the files in etc downwards for the domain:

grep -r domain.com /etc

Also check for a zone in /var/named/

Hi,

I tried /scripts/updateuserdomains previously.

Thanks for the grep line, I've run that and can see quite a few results. I'll start looking through them.

No DNS zone either, checked this previously too.

Many thanks,
Nick.

OK, most of the results I got were referring to /etc/vmail/ - I'm assuming this wouldn't help if I removed the domain from these?

I've also noticed a few things such as /etc/localdomains,v:domain.com, but upon editing that file it looks a bit messy, and I don't really want to mess around with that. Likewise with /etc/named.conf,v.

I'd be interested to know what the ',v' bit stands for, and whether it's something to be wary of.

The ,v files are temporary files used by the cPanel scripts and shouldn't be a problem. You can actualy recreate the /etc/vmail folder using:

/scripts/fullhordereset

Hi,

Thanks for the information - I ran that script and it's tidying up that particular directory now.

I'm still not having any luck with the ownership issue :(

If you have a look in:

/scripts/park

It might give you some ideas of where to look. You could also try using the script itself.
