    Im on the latest R release 10.0.7 nd have noticed a big problem with terminating accounts.

    The process spits out:

    and just hangs and the account doenst get deleted.

    anyone else have this problem? is it a known bug? and is there a fix for it?

    /scripts/upcp --force

    or change to STABLE or EDGE and update again, does this help?

    Try disabling their shell access, restarting ssh, then ps aux | grep accountname

    and manually kill all their processes.

    After that try to terminate the account.

    The chmod fix worked for me but the cPanel team needs to address this issue. This is a brand new install on Fedora Core 2 and it just hangs. Chmodding a file to 0 isn't a fix, it's a patch.

    Thanks for the patch, btw. :)

    From what I heard, in this case it's not an issue with Cpanel. It's an upstream issue. So the Fedora developers should fix it.

    WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-R82 has the same problem. So how can I do this trick really?

    FIX: Well.. this trick with changing mode for grpck helped. THen I would like to ask - should I change it back as it was?
