    Ok, here is the situation... i changed the domain of a reseller account from Domain A to Domain B. Then i setup Domain A again as a reseller account (this was simply to switch the clients from one reseller domain to another).

    Then i terminated the reseller account for Domain A. However the problem is that the IPs used for the nameservers for Domain A have not been released. I tried deleting the IPs and then adding them again, but it still shows up as being in use.

    Before, it &show IP address usage& showed the following:

    123.456.7.890 [http: www.domainA.com] [ftp: ftp.domainA.com] [mail: domainA.com(1 accts) ]
    123.456.7.891

    So i set about deleting all the files manually, and editing password, shadow files etc. etc.

    Now it shows:

    123.456.7.890 [ftp: ftp.domainA.com]
    123.456.7.891

    So if i can just get it to take off the FTP thingy... it should release the IPs for use. Any ideas what files i need to edit/delete?
