    Hello community,

    I have a Ispconfig 3.1.7p1. I have created a web and it was added successfully. Then I removed the web again, and discovered that the crontab for that user was not deleted. This behaviour is already adressed in a bug report here: https: //

    I have also seen that the web user (in my case web3: web3:x:5006:5005::/var/www/clients/client1/web3:/bin/false ) in /etc/passwd is still existing and not deleted. maybe this needs a bug filx too.

    Kind regards Mike

    Then create a bug report.

    Tested this in ISPConfg 3.1.7p1 and the user gets removed correctly from /etc/passwd when I delete the website.

    Hello HSorgYves, hello till,

    after HSorgYves advised me to sumbit a bug report to git. I have freshly installed a new server (3.1.7p1) to document this, only to find out that it works as expected. There is no problem with this version.

    Thank you for your help.

    Does it work on your production server as well?
