    Hello there,
    a couple of weeks ago we had a server crash when someone tried to terminate an account with WHM.
    This evening the same thing happend..
    After the account was deleted the load went through the roof. Looking at /var/log/messages you can see it went abit crazy.
    The server runs rh 6.2 and the latest build of cpanel/whm.
    After a few mins of the load sky rocketing the services all went down, sshd, httpd, ftpd. the box had to be hard rebooted at the noc to get it to bounce back.

    has anyone had this problem before and if so knows a fix?

    If you need any more info, just ask.
