    Hi

    On the dedicated servers and on the VPS servers-the
    quota was working fine until the last few weeks

    Now -- on some sites --
    the quota in cpanel does not correspond
    with the quota in SSH when you do a
    du -h

    is there a command in SSH
    to fix quotas on specific sites?

    I do not want to run fix quotas on an entire server

    thanks
    Audrey

    Go on, have a guess
    If quotas don't tally (and using du is not a reliable way of checking) then you will have to rebuild the disk quotas using /scripts/fixquotas

    The Linus quota system can also break on VPS systems if you allow OS updates to the quota rpms. In those cases you'll have to get help from the VPS provider for a fix.

    quotas

    hi Jonathan

    Thanks for your help with this

    Unfortunately using
    /scripts/fixquotas
    on the dedicated server
    orhaving a provider do any quota fixes on the VPS
    just causes more troublewith quota- and makes more sites with quota problems

    that is why I was looking for a way to adjust the quota on individual sites.

    just out of curiosity-as you say-
    du is not a reliable way of checking quotas--
    what do you recommend as a reliable way?

    thanks
    Audrey
