Terminate cPanel Accounts from the Command Line

This guide is intended for cPanel and WHM server Admins that would like to terminate user accounts from a command-line interface. Account termination is permanent and should only be used by experienced server administrators.

Terminating Accounts with /scripts/removeacct

The /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/removeacct script terminates cPanel accounts from the command line.

To use the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/removeacct script to terminate a cPanel account from the command line, login to the server as root user and run the following command (replacing "username" with the username of the account to terminate):

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/removeacct username [options]


When you run the /scripts/removeacct script, you can specify the following options:

--force Bypass the confirmation step in the script and immediately terminate the account.

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/removeacct username --force

--keepdns Retain the account's zone files from the DNS server when the script terminates the account (useful when migrating accounts between servers in a DNS cluster).

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/removeacct username --keepdns
