    Ok - I was troubleshooting one account - fixed it...

    but just then apache and/or named crashed. Once the server was up and running I checked things and one user account is missing.

    It was a new account - unused and just added yesterday. It's no longer listed in cpanel or showing up in ssh as root.

    However, when I try to re-add the account in WHM - I get the Ouch! That username is already taken. error....

    any ideas?

    FIXED!

    removed user from:

    /etc/passwd
    /etc/group

    and did:
    rm -f /var/cpanel/users/username

    Then removed the virtual domain from:
    /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf

    Was then able to recreate the account and restore backup.
