cPanel Access Level
Website Owner
Hi, I am very new to linux and using putty to change some settings and the thing is I wanted to increase my quota limit for uploads.

I followed all the steps setting up up to this point:
How to Disable Filesystem Quotas - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

I searched the web for every solution, but I can't seem to figure out how to edit the grub file let alone find it. Any help is greatly appreciated

Hello @zachowania,

Welcome to the cPanel Forums! We're glad to have you here, and we're excited to help you as much as possible. First, if you're new to Linux, the following document is worth a read:

Getting Started with Linux Commands - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

Additionally, cPanel University is free and perfect for users new to cPanel & WHM:

cPanel University -- Get Certified!

Onto your question:

I wanted to increase my quota limit for uploads.
Can you share some more information about what you are uploading and how? For instance, are you using FTP, File Manager, or some other method? Also, is this a shared hosting plan with cPanel access only, or is this a VPS or Dedicated Server where you have root access to the server?

I look forward to your response.

Thank you.
