My my paypal.pl scripts work fine creating the usernames/passwords in my .htpasswd file, the problem is when I cancel the account, or the user cancels the account, the usernames/passwords are not being deleted from the .htpasswd file. I'm not a programmer, so is there anyone that can tell me what I need to add to the paypal.pl script to accomplish this? The script is hosted on Apache server software.

Thank you
JR Brewington

They won't be deleted until the "end of term".

So, a customer can subscribe, get the username/password, then cancel the account, and still be able to log in? Is there anyway to change this?

Yes, because they've paid through the end of term. You could modify the script to delete the customer upon "subscr_cancel" but then you would be short-changing the customer.
