I can\'t use quota.
How can I use quota system on ext3.
I would definitely second that motion-
that is, I\'ve never had any luck with the quota installation included with CPanel in conjunction with an ext3 filesystem.... this is *barely* mentioned elsewhere on the forum.
Does anyone have any light to shed on this..... I am very interested in what others have found / if anything.
Weekends are F-U-N.....
I guess no one knows, but I would also like to know if ext3 is supported.
Darkorb- Any wisdom available on this?
Definitely curious still.
I have conflicting results on a variety of RH 7.2 systems and to be honest I really don\'t know what to be looking for in this area.... technically.
i have the same problem on a EXT3 filesystem
Nick, could we get some guidance on this issue?
I hate to post to bump things to the top again so you see them... this really is important to many individuals and will become more important as time progresses.
Quotas are handled by the kernel... the only fs that supports quotas is the ext2 fs, according to documentation for the latest stable 2.4.17.
If you say Y here, you will be able to set per user limits for disk
usage (also called disk quotas). Currently, it works only for the
ext2 file system. You need additional software in order to use quota
support; for details, read the Quota mini-HOWTO, available from
<http://www.linuxdoc.org/docs.html#howto>. Probably the quota
support is only useful for multi user systems. If unsure, say N.
This is so frustrating! Some users have ext3 and they report quotas to be working on their systems.
Should I use ext2 instead of ext3 ?
root@host1 [/home/java]# quotacheck -mavug
Cannot get exact used space... Results might be inaccurate.
quotacheck: Scanning /dev/sda5 [/home] done
quotacheck: Checked 33 directories and 95 files
quotacheck: Scanning /dev/sda2 [/usr] done
quotacheck: Checked 5508 directories and 75436 files
quotacheck: Scanning /dev/sda6 [/var] done
quotacheck: Checked 206 directories and 773 files
root@host1 [/home/java]# quota -u java
Disk quotas for user java (uid 32004):
Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace
/dev/sda5 332 102400 102400 54 0 0
/dev/sda6 0 102400 102400 1 0 0
root@host1 [/home/java]# du -h
User java uses 73M space, but from quota and Cpanel only 0.32Mb used space.
Does Cpanel support ext3 on a Redhat 7.2 machine ?
Or should I format fs with ext2 instead ext3 ?
Yes raylin, I just found out the hard way. Cpanel and quotas DO work very well with ext3 as long as you have 7.2 I am running 3 boxes now with 7.2 and everything is running great with quotas.
As I understand it, quotas do not work with ext3 on RedHat 6.2, but they should work on 7.2.
ext3kit - the 6.2 fi
I wrote an installer to update everything required to fix ext3 + quotas on RedHat 6.2 machines running ext3.
It's available here:
Be warned: If you install this without enabling ext3 in your kernel and switching your machine over to ext3 by editing /etc/fstab and rebooting, quotas WILL cease to function on 6.2 boxes. If you don't know how to enable ext3 in your kernel, or check to see if ext3 is enabled in your kernel, [b:ff885ad372]you should not be using this script![/b:ff885ad372] You would be better off paying someone else to do it for you.
How it works:
Updates the quota-tools package.
Updates the e2fsprogs package.
Replaces /scripts/pedquota with a version which understands the new quota-tools output. (The stock Cpanel version, slightly modded to only support RH7.2 (ie, a later version of quota-tools.)).
I've successfully used the above method to upgrade all of our shared machines which run 6.2.
Of course, this script comes with no warrenties, guarantees or promises of functionality or reliability. If you break your server while trying to use this script--I am not in any way responsible!
tar -zxvf ext3kit.tgz; cd ext3kit; perl install.pl
Just enabled quota support on a server with RedHat 7.1, EXT3 and kernel 2.4.18.
Appears to be working fine.
