    Enabled demo on an account that we have a cronjob that runs every 9am.

    Cron Daemon emails me "Shell access is not enabled for demo accounts!"

    Cron Daemon still emails me even when i disabled the demo account. Any ideas?

    Hello :)

    Have you tried updating the shell access for the account after disabling demo mode via "WHM Home » Account Functions » Manage Shell Access"?

    Note that shell access is intentionally disabled on demo accounts as a security measure. Typically, you should create a separate empty account for use as a demo and terminate it when it's no longer required.

    Thank you.
