    The initial setup questions, right after installing a fresh cpanel, asks if it should enable filesystem quota. After saying yes (or no, for that matter) to that question, is there a way to change this afterwards?
    I checked the Server Configuration screens, but found nothing resembling this option besides "Initial Quota Setup", but that only seems to be able to enable it (while I'd like to disable it).

    Only via the command line. You'll need to:

    1. turn off quotas
    2. remove quota capabilities from /etc/fstab
    3. either remount mount points or reboot the server

    At the moment I'm still more fluent at ssh than at cpanel, so I'll try the ssh way, thanks! :)
