    user accounts

    where does cpanel or linux store the actual user records - e.g. the ones that show up when you go click List Accounts - and not just /etc/passwd or /etc/group

    Did you checked the ownership of ' users' directory. It should be like the following :

    drwxr-sr-x 2 cpanel root 4096 Jun 19 16:01 users/

    Also make sure other directories inside '/var/cpanel' having right ownership/permission.
