    I made a mistake and messed up my server (a first).

    In hopes of trying to clear up my /var fill up problem, I searched on here, and did a:


    cd /home
    touch quota.user
    touch aquota.user
    quotacheck -magun

    Everything rebooted fine...

    But then a couple hours later, it was down.

    I probably missed something after I did that...

    /etc/fstab is:

    /dev/hda5 / ext3 rw 0 0
    none /proc proc rw 0 0
    usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs rw 0 0
    /dev/hdb1 /backup ext3 rw 0 0
    /dev/hda1 /boot ext3 rw 0 0
    none /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    /dev/hda7 /home ext3 rw,usrquota 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
    /dev/hda3 /usr ext3 rw,usrquota 0 0
    /dev/hda2 /var ext3 rw,usrquota 0 0
    /tmp /var/tmp none rw,noexec,nosuid,bind 0 0

    -----

    Should I have removed quota from /var?

    Is there way to not get quotas to process in /home (can't figure out how to unmount it).

    Can someone help!

    My server has been down 3 times in 24 hours (most of the day).

    Thanks!

    Go on, have a guess
    If you want to disable quotas, you can remove the usrquota from the disk/partition in fstab and reboot. You can only disable quotas on a running server when it's not in use, so a reboot is usually necessary unless you shutdown most of the running daemons, if you do that you should be able to use quotaoff.

    I had a feeling that was what had to be done, but I wasn't sure.

    Should that be it?

    That's the only thing I did before I starting having server problems (apparently, it didn't like /home all that well).

    Would that bring down the server?

    Thanks (rebooting now - hopefully it will stay up).

    You really ought not to have problems having quotas enabled on the /home partition. Indeed, you want them enabled if you want to apply quota limits on cPanel accounts. the proof ought really to be in the logs and/or on the console when the server crashes.
