    We have just started using cPanel, but are using ZFS for our /home to speed up reboots when a fsck is required.

    Can we configure cPanel to configure the quotas in ZFS vs UFS? If so, how?

    FreeBSD 7.1 is the OS we are running on. I did a search and didn't find anything on it through the forum.

    TIA

    At this time we do not support FreeBSD 7.1 nor ZFS.

    Do you support any version of FreeBSD? Is there a script that handles the UFS quotas?

    Thanks

    They support FreeBSD 7, and cPanel works just fine with 7.1.

    You typically need to recompile your kernel to enable standard quotas.

    Thanks for the reply. I am curious as to the module that tracks and writes the quotas for UFS (maybe we can modify it to work with ZFS if it is in PERL). We will continue to use ZFS regardless, but I just wanted to know.

    Add this to your kernel configuration

    Code:
    options         QUOTA
    
    Be sure to enable them in rc.conf.


    This should get your started with standard quotas. http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/quotas.html
