    Need to delete DirectAdmin account with over 100GB of data

    I think it's going to time out if I delete it through the control panel.

    What's the best way to do this?

    I am thinking remove the user folder in SSH and then delete the account using the control panel, would this work and is this recommended?

    are those 100gb files in /home/user/domains/public_html?
    you can do "rm -fr /home/user/domains" in ssh
    and then after it's done delete it through control panel.
    i've done this so many times without any problem.

    Yes, I am agree with meyu. you should gather all files in particular directory say 'home' and can run rm -fr home. Where -f option will delete files forcefully.
