    I have been having issues with ISPConfig after recently upgrading to the latest version Today again I deleted a user from a domain, emptied my recycle bin and tried recreating the user again. I keep on getting the error: The username is already in use

    I checked all the file to see if the user has been deleted and could not find it anywhere in either the system users or virtusertable. Where is ISPConfig then seeing this user that has been deleted?

    Is that user listed in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users?

    or /etc/passwd for that matter?

    You should be able to check it by going:

    sudo nano /etc/passwd

    I found the user in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users

    How can I get ISPConfig to write/delete from this file in the future?

    ISPConfig doesn't write from that file, it only reads it, so you can delete the user from there manually.
