It should be doing that by default, MySQL & Email space is part of the account
Actually, it is not. Emails are part of the account but mysql is not. Mysql files are not owned by the user but by mysql...

Just an example :

Disk usage 103.02 / 500.00 MB
MySQL Disk usage 495.50 MB
Disk space available 396.98 MB

The problem is that the mysql files are not owned by the username. There is not much that we can do from our side and your best option would be to contact directly cPanel support and/or add it to bugzilla.cpanel.net.

This would be a nice improvement :)

MySQL itself does not support filesystem quotas. There are various ways to coax (read: force) the system to use filesystem quotas with MySQL databases, but none work very well, and there are trivial ways to bypass the quotas with a default MySQL configuration.

So what ? Does this mean that the mysql space will never count under the user quota, even with cPanel 11 ?

Hello friends,

The space used by mysql of an account will come under the quta of that account.

But we cant fix a particular quta to mysql.

The cpanel setting is llike that . mysql can use any amount of space available from an account.

Go on, have a guess
Well, you can use /scripts/updatemysqlquota which will then charge the space to the quota as it simply chowns the mysql table files. However, there are some major problems in doing this:

1. If any cPanel accounts runs out of quota, MySQL will break

2. You have to run the script on a regular basis as it will need to chown newly created MySQL databases/tables

I think he means having a separate quota for databases, much as there are for email accounts. This *might* be possible with some of the methods we're investigating for database quota enforcement.

yes, that is the idea .

account espace = email quota + mysql quota + espace quota .

exaple 1 :

account espace : 500 mg ;
email quota : 10 mg ;
mysql quota : 120 mg ;

Disk space available = (500 -10 - 120) = 370 mg .

exaple 2 :

account espace : 500 mg ;
email quota : 10 mg ;
mysql quota : 520 mg ;

Disk space available = (500 -10 - 520) = -30 mg . (quota exceced ).

hello all

i want to make the MySQL Disk Space part of the user quota , for example if the disk space used is 100 mb and the mysql disk space is 200 mb and the package assigned to the use is 250 mb , it must show a over quota of this user .

any idea or any methode to do this .

thanks in advance
Maybe PHP it? :)

<?php
$mysql = '<cpanel Mysql="diskusage()">';
$disk = '<cpanel Quota="showquotaused()">';
echo $mysql + $disk;
?>

Right now we have 2 separate quotas one for Mail and One for web eg. User gets 50mb web space and 200mb email space the modules aren't that hard to build :)

That's not how it would work, IIU cpanelkenneth correctly. You would have a separate quota for MySQL database (that is, separate from the disk quota). The email quota is already included in the disk quota (it's a subset of it, if you like), and the MySQL quota would not be charged to the disk quota but would be a separate quota on the account.

this is possible in cpanel what i have mentioned

account espace = email quota + mysql quota + espace quota


and how ?

this fontcion must be integrated in cpanel , beacause some account has per example 100 mb qouta , but they use 10 mb espace and 1500 mb in mysql database . that is not logical ; if we have limited the account in 100 mb it must be show that user has been execed the quta of this account .

I agree, this should have been fixed long ago.

CPanel DOES show the amount of disk space used by files/e-mails.
CPanel DOES show the amount of disk space used by mysql.

Why can't cpanel add the 2 up(as examples shown previously in this thread) and display the correct available space?

It is a matter of a + b =c
If c > x then account ok
If c < x then account is not ok


I figured something like this would be cake for the cpanel devs to integrate, No?
