create/delete user problem

April 1, 2010 at 03:47:29
Specs: Linux Redhat/CentOS (2.6.9-89.0.15.ELsmp)
While creating a new user by SSH I
accidentally tried to assign a home folder
which was allready a home folder of an other
user.
I tried to restore the situation but it has gotten
messy.
I cannot login with the original user (it had
dissapeared from /ets/passwd) and I tried
manually to remove the new user from this file.
After restart httpd the service didn't came up. I
added the manually removed user again to the
file and i could restart the httpd. Also i see the
older user back in the list but i still cannot log
in as this user. what can i do to fix this mess?

What error message are you getting when you are trying to log in as the other user? Did you try changing the account's password (passwd user)?
