Hello, I'm having trouble creating an account. WHM just sits there and spins it's wheels. The process I took is: Add the IP to system, clicked Create New Account, associated it with the new IP. Output below. <hidden> entries are correct for the system.



WWWAcct 9.2 (c) 1997-2004 cPanel, Inc.

WARNING: using a custom IP overrides the setting!
+===================================+
| New Account Info |
+===================================+
| Domain: <hidden>
| Ip: <hidden> (y)
| HasCgi: y
| UserName: <hidden>
| PassWord: <hidden>
| CpanelMod: x
| HomeRoot: /home
| Quota: 0 Meg
| NameServer1: <hidden>
| NameServer2: <hidden>
| NameServer3:
| NameServer4:
| Contact Email:
+===================================+
Keeping Shell Access (y)
Copying skel files from /root/cpanel3-skel/ to /home/millcree/
Using Freebsd Copy
/root/cpanel3-skel/public_html -> /home/millcree/public_html
/root/cpanel3-skel/public_ftp -> /home/millcree/public_ftp


That's all. It freezes here. Inspection shows that public_ftp was created properly; anything else I should check for a stopping point? /var/log files don't reflect any errors.

This is the 2nd account i've created, using the same process; the first account went OK, the only hangup was that I had to manually restart apache.

Any ideas or more info I could provide?

Remedy

Not unlike kicking the misbehaving dog, I rebooted the server and retried the wwwacct script; it worked fine this time. I did notice two instances of the wwwacct script running before the reboot (idle but present pids), they may have been dueling for locked files or something.
