    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>

    +===================================+
    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?

    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.
