Removing an user with previous versions of PMSS was a manual task. Both methods are described here. In both methods remember to remove DNS entries if you are not using wildcard records.

Terminate script

/scripts/terminateUser.php USERNAME

Confirm deletion, and script will remove the user


Manual user removal

cd /home
killall -9 -u USERNAME
userdel USERNAME
vim /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
/etc/init.d/lighttpd restart
htpasswd -D /etc/lighttpd/.htpasswd USERNAME
rm -rf USERNAME

When you open lighttpd conf in vim type: /USERNAME[enter] and you will likely end up on first line of user VHOST configuration, then type: d9[arrow down] to delete that section. save & exit by typing: :wq[enter] htpasswd -D line is optional, but recommended.
