Make sure the user is not in /etc/password and /etc/shadow if they are use deluser USERNAME (or userdel USERNAME) to remove them. Make sure they you do not really need the account if you do this!

I would first check that they are not listed in WHM. If you delete it like this you may have to remove the user from proftp and apache manually.

Not quite the point

Well, I was just tagging on to some one else's post so let me state my problem over.

I remove an account from WHM and it goes through and says it is doing all of this, but it isn't. I am using Fedora 3 x86_64. I tried coping the /scripts/killlacct to another file and added the username but it just says it cannot find that user. I can't find any place that logs what the script does so I don't know why it fails to delte the 'real user'.
