    Hi

    ok, i have a reseller panel..

    and i wanna make a new section on my main site to work as a (Webdrive) system

    any user can register (via a form) and pay of a spacified amount of disk sizes, and get *only* an FTP account to upload his files as he wish .. but he hase to be limited to his (QUOTA)

    i made a new *main* account on my Reseller CP , and tried to make FTP accounts on that main account for users... but i realized that this is no limit for the disk size they will have ...

    i want some thing like the (Mail Account) system on CPanel .. you can make a qouta for each mail account ... so here i want to make a qouta for eah FTP account..

    is that possible or not ?

    thank you :)

    there is a free script like that and i have used it, but it does not use ftp. it would be web-based uploading for all your users.

    We've developed a system that allows user management of folders for image hosting.

    Not sure if this is similiar but it is available for liscensing.

    You can try out the system for free here
    http://www.sighost.us

    Liscensing isn't something we promote but might be a solution depending on your situation.

    The system was developed by 3 PHP programmers so you can get an idea what this would cost.

    The system is constantly upgraded and tuned to manage as many users that it does manage so you would expect a system like this to pull at least 75 a month.

    I wouldn't say the system is ready for liscensing though, it's a one tiered extension system right now (One set of allowed file extensions), as such it's unusable for reselling of space (For different extensions per a tiered user level), although you could do it with a one tiered system.

    The next step is to allow for multiple levels of users, offering different file extensions per user level, if that makes sense.

    Why not an account for each user?

    There was a mod_quota file for proftpd but it seems it's been discontinued. pureftpd supports virtual quotas, but I don't know if the version that comes with Cpanel is compiled with that option. See here http://www.pureftpd.org/README

    thats a nifty proggie...however, it only controls the xfer size and quota...and not the users' diskspace quota --from what i've read...

    but i might be wrong?...let me know how it goes...
