cPanel: Group ownership become ID?

Today I found that one account having weird error.

Error:
1) The group ownership became an ID and the site is unable to load as in valid group.
2) Where try chown the folder, it will return “invalid user” error

Solution:

1) check if the group ownership is correct, it wrong as below, please continue step (2)

2) open /etc/group and add in USER:x:GROUP:

For the screen shot case, add it as ipless:x:512:

3) /etc/gshadow and add in USER:!::

For the screen shot case, add it as ipless:!::

Done and the group permission will correct automatically.
