    I added a user manually before I installed cPanel for some various things (trivia based eggdrop, ect), I have this user added as a trusted user in WHM, but its still killing his eggdrops every night. Do i need to add the user properly through WHM before it will stop killing his tasks, or is there something else I need to check? In the mean time, I just unchecked the background check for eggdrops.

    Thanks

    When you mention trusted user, you mean on WHM -> System Health -> Background Process Killer correct? And the eggdrop is running using their UID, correct?

    yes, sorry. But, the user was not added via cPanel, it was a useradd -d /home.... etc before cpanel was setup. I dont see why this would make a difference, but it's the only idea I have.

    thanks again.

    Try re-creating the user as a cPanel user. It is unlikely that cPanel will properly handle any *nix accounts created outside the WHM interface (or its scripts and APIs).
