Hello,

The following quota requirement is documented on How to Fix Quotas:

You must enable quotas for any device on which cPanel accounts exist.
If you are concerned about potential issues with enabling quota on your system, or encounter errors upon doing so, feel free to submit a support ticket and we can take a closer look.

If you need to exclude certain filesystems from quota management, the document below includes instructions on how to do so after enabling quotas on the system:

The Quota File Systems Configuration File - Version 80 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.

Same problem. I have 0 need for quota I use cpanel to help me manage my sites i maintain everything has unlimited, and not to mention everything works fine, just let us disable the error. You cant just put an upgrade out there, and expect everyone to conform to enable quotes when thats not how they conduct business. And my host pretty well said they are unable to comply with the request to change, as seen in Enable Quotas on a Virtuozzo VPS - Version 80 Documentation - cPanel Documentation so now, How do I get around this. How do I get around the Banner.

Hello Everyone,

We're now tracking the request for an option to disable the "Filesystem quotas are currently disabled" banner on servers where quotas are intentionally disabled as part of case CPANEL-27976. I'll monitor this case and update this thread with more information as it becomes available.

Thank you.

I put up a workaround on my browser using Tampermonkey, but any userscript.js browser plugin will work. Here is the script I am using which just specifically hides the Quota Warning so it won't affect any other banners messages that show up there.:
Code:
(function() {
    'use strict';
    // Create function to add CSS
    function addCSSRule(sheet, selector, rules, index) {
    if("insertRule" in sheet) {
        sheet.insertRule(selector + "{" + rules + "}", index);
    }
    else if("addRule" in sheet) {
        sheet.addRule(selector, rules, index);
    }
}
// Add CSS to hide message
addCSSRule(document.styleSheets[0], "#quotaDisabledWarning", "display: none !important;");
})();
that looks Interesting.. could you tell me where would you save it and how to call it ? i would like to apply it to my server with godaddy that has the same annoying warning about "Filesystem quotas are currently disabled." thanks

hey Michael, is there anything new about this annoying warning ? I am current using WHM v82.0.15 and my dedicated server with godaddy still shows it !!

What I posted doesn't actually go on the server, at least I am not aware of any way to do it. I suppose if you could modify the whm template, then that could work, but I just personally use it on my Firefox browser. You just need to install a plugin for your browser that enables userscripts which basically just insert javascript into whichever sites you want to modify their behavior on the fly. Obviously you want to be careful about which userscripts you use since I am sure there are many malicious userscripts out there.

As you can see from what I posted, I just created mine to simply insert a CSS rule that hides the message.

Hello @jrxpress,

I'd like to confirm if the issue remains reproducible in cPanel & WHM version 84. Can you share the output from the commands below on one of the affected servers?

Rich (BB code):
cat /etc/redhat-release
mount | grep ' / '
cat /var/cpanel/envtype
Thank you.

I think the "Filesystem quotas are currently disabled " yellow banner should be eliminated when WHM runs in a Virtuozzo system, because the instructions for enabling quotas on Virtuozzo (which are required by WHM accompanied by a stern warning message) are very complex and error-prone. We should not be allowed to create a nonfunctional system just because we clicked a few buttons that asked to be clicked, or were showed in yellow to draw our attention.

hello cPanelMichael

I just run the command line you suggested into both of my dedicated servers, whatever only SERVER 2 is displaying the annoying warning :

SERVER 1 (normal server)

[email protected] [~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 6.10 (Final)
[email protected] [~]# mount | grep ' / '
/dev/mapper/vg-root on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,discard,usrjquota=quota.user,jqfmt=vfsv0)
[email protected] [~]# cat /var/cpanel/envtype
[email protected] [~]#
SERVER 2 (affected server)

[[email protected] ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 6.10 (Final)
[[email protected] ~]# mount | grep ' / '
/dev/ploop13605p1 on / type ext4 (rw,relatime,barrier=1,data=ordered,balloon_ino=12)
[[email protected] ~]# cat /var/cpanel/envtype
virtuozzo[[email protected] ~]#

the warning Filesystem quotas are currently disabled keeps nagging on SERVER 2 current hosted with GoDaddy.

I completely agree with you david364 :)

this yellow banner has such a negative impact each time I login to my WHM painel :mad: It makes me very unhappy :rolleyes:

besides this drama with quotas I am also having issue with ipv6table when cleaning up reports on cPhulk.. So..
Host company like GoDaddy would NOT provide support when the subject is kernel related ..

that is why this annoying warning should be disabled on cPanel end for Virtuozzo system or in another words,
please leave Virtuozzo System alone :-p there is always something wrong with it kernel related.. or make it more compatible o_O

BTW.. loving those little Smiles faces !!

Looks like Godaddy is moving off their Virtuozzo system and to OpenStax using a KVM system. I am actually already setup on one of these new systems and it is a much better experience and this particular issue is solve. It also fixes a few other issues including one related to CXS and its Watch Daemon.

So I would highly recommend getting in touch with Godaddy, who is actually running an unannounced special on these new systems, and making the switch. It is definitely an ordeal to move domains if you have a lot of sites on the server, but it is well worth it particularly if you are still on CentOS 6 which is reaching its end of life at the end of 2020 anyway.

Tangential Pro Tip: While you are moving, I would highly recommend checking out Engintron, it is a open source cPanel/WHM plugin that layers Nginx over top of Apache and helps speed up page loads by acting like a reverse caching proxy. There are similar plugins but that is one that is working well for me and testing it out during the migration was really convenient since I didn't have to worry about live sites going down while I tested it.

I, too, am getting very tired of seeing that banner every time I go in~

Come on, guys, this can't be that tough to fix! I am soon going to start searching for an alternative to WHM/cPanel if you don't start fixing stuff... I mean, you gouged us for more money and where is our return for our investment?????
