Hi

There is no such procedure of removing the cpanel.The quickest method is to reinstall your server from scratch with your operating system / control panel software of choice.If you do want to remove cPanel yourself, the following are the steps:

1. Delete the directory and contents of /usr/local/cpanel & /scripts
2. Remove all the cPanel startup scripts (FreeBSD users should find the startup scripts in '/usr/local/etc/rc.d/')
3. Kill any cPanel related processes
4. Reconfigure remaining applications which you want to continue to use such as Apache, BIND etc

their is another method that I jsut thought of. Create the account but do not give the user the password to the account. THey may have cpanel installed but they will not have access. to it. Thankyou for you help tho.

actually, if you give them the ftp user/pass, they can login to cpanel using those, as they are the same.
Not necessarily ....

The master FTP to the account is indeed the Cpanel login.

However, any additional FTP logins created on the account don't work on Cpanel

I'd say keep the master login password to yourself and just setup an additional login
to give out to the user that you don't want accessing cpanel.

Another way if the user has a dedicated IP is to just create an IPTABLES rule to block
them from Cpanel "iptables -A INPUT -s xx.xx.xx.xx -p tcp --dport 2082:2086 -j REJECT"

And yet another way is to just not setup the account using Cpanel and instead just
create the account manually and it won't appear in Cpanel

Any of the above should work, take your pick.

yes all will work hah. I will most likely create a folder in my account and give them a ftp access to that folder only. or yes the new ftp account will work aswell.

Thx for you help guys.
