    hi Fellas and Fellettes,

    Ive searched everywhere for an answer to this and cant find one. There might not be an answer at all. I run fc5 with whm/cpanel/fantastico and use that for webhosting some of my own domains etc. but i do give out shell accounts to my friends. just shell accounts, no web access so i just add them in from ssh. All my quotas work fine from within cpanel for all my domains that have been added etc. but my shell accounts have no quotas on them and i would like to set 50MB quotas for them without interfering with cpanel`s quota system. . does anyone know a solution to this at all?

    Go on, have a guess
    You can use the standard quota system. On Linux, have a look at:

    man edquota

    cheers, thanks for that chirpy. from my reading i was scared i would upset cpanels quota system.

    as an example. what command would you use to set shell user cowboy a 50MB quota? i dont want to stuff anything up
