    I run fixquotas and get this errors for every account:


    Resetting quota for username to 50 M
    edquota: Can't open quotafile //aquota.user: Permission denied
    edquota: Can't open quotafile /home/aquota.user: Permission denied
    edquota: Can't open quotafile /usr/aquota.user: Permission denied
    edquota: Can't open quotafile /var/aquota.user: Permission denied
    No filesystems with quota detected.
    .....

    and if I go on WHM and change quota limit the WHM not update the new value, really I not can change quota limit for every username

    Do you have any quotas set for your partition(s)? You can run these commands to see the results for your mount points:

    Code:
    mount
    cat /etc/fstab

    What was the result for mount, though? Also, is this a dedicated machine or a VPS node?

    this is result of mount:

    Code:
    /dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,usrquota)
    none on /proc type proc (rw)
    none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
    none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
    usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
    none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
    /dev/sda7 on /home type ext3 (rw,usrquota)
    /dev/sda6 on /tmp type ext3 (rw,noexec)
    /dev/sda2 on /usr type ext3 (rw,usrquota)
    /dev/sda3 on /var type ext3 (rw,usrquota)
    none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
    /tmp on /tmp type none (rw,noexec,nosuid,bind)
    sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
    
    ...is a dedicated server

    Please provide the permissions for /home and / partitions along with an ls output for / partition:

    Code:
    ls -lah /
    ls -ld /home
    ls -lah /home/aquota.user

    Please try /scripts/initquotas instead. If that reports the same errors, tail the cPanel error log at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log and provide any errors reported while running the initquotas script.

    Could you open up a ticket for what is happening using WHM > Support Center > Contact cPanel or using the link in my signature? From what I can see, the mounts are correct and quotas should be working on the machine, so I'm not certain where else to go without access to the machine.
