    Ok, I'm running FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE
    Cpanel Latest Stable

    I have my kernel compiled with quota support on, /etc/rc.conf has:
    enable_quotas="YES"
    check_quotas="YES"

    /etc/fstab:

    /dev/ad0s1g /usr ufs rw, userquota,groupquota 2 2

    Kernel is in use and reboots fine, quota is enabled and below is what I get when I do /scripts/fixquotas

    nina# /scripts/fixquotas
    Quotas are now on
    Note: call resetquota with --useplanquotas to reset all quotas to plan defaults
    Resetting quota for west to 500 Meg....Done
    nina#

    in WHM and Cpanel it shows no disk limits whatsoever, this is a new server and I always do extensive testing before going live so I have a test account on it, it obviously knows the test account is allotted 500Megs as shown above.

    What am I missing here, any ideas?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Suddenly it came to me, see this:

    rw, userquota,groupquota

    notice the space between rw, & userquota?

    remove the space

    rw,userquota,groupquota

    may seem obvious but it will make it not work.

    I fixed that, rebooted, ran /scripts/fixquotas and bam
    fixed.

    Good Luck.
