    Im getting this

    ouch, that user name is already taken

    I know what it means, the user was removed the wrong way so its giving that when I try to re add the user.

    I removed the /home and the addition in /etc/passwd

    But it is still giving me that error...

    Any ideas?

    Next would be the httpd.conf file and possibly the named.conf as well.
