I have a WHM/CPanel machine...

every night fixquotas runs at 22:01 and the server gets loaded down for about 20 minutes. Server loads go up to the high single digits, and bog down my server.

Is this normal?

I can't seem to find the location of this cron script...

hi arn

connect to your server through ssh. on the prompt do this

[email protected]&crontab -l

find out the entry for /scripts/fixquotas

then edit the file with crontab -e command and remove it..

If you want quotas to work as often as possible, you should leave that in your nightly cron. It's very normal for the load to shoot up during the time it runs....

If you want to reschedule during a different time, or bi-weekly, or something along those lines, just contact fastservers tech support and they will help you out, no problem.
