    I had an interesting issue today where a customer wanted a redirect moved. In cPanel I went to Site Management -> Redirects, and clicked remove. It appeared successful but the redirect worked. I opened another browser and it still worked so I checked and it appeared no matter how many times I attempted to remove it, the redirect was still listed in cPanel.

    I eventually removed the line from the users .htaccess and the redirect went away and no longer populated in the list. I was curious as to why this happened? I did not see anything in the cPanel error log. Anyone ever see this before?

    What permissions are on the .htaccess?

    .htaccess is 644 and user/group is owned by the username for the account.

    Not a big deal :) I will notify cPanel support for an explanation or at least let them be aware.

    Another thought came to mind. Did you look at the .htaccess first? perhaps the entry was in their twice? Or the user added it manually?
