reseller overselling problem

    Seem to have an issue with limit resources / overselling allowed.

    I have checked

    Limit Accounts that "user" can create by Resource Usage
    I also put actual "max allowed" disk / bandwidth in resource usage column on right.
    I have checked overselling for both.

    I was assuming that overselling allows them to create packages bigger than their max allowed, but still NOT use more than allowed. I must have been wrong

    I tested a small reseller account with 10mb disk / 500mb bandwidth. Created a package with 50mb disk / 1000mb bandwidth. It allowed it, good.

    Then, I uploaded more than 10mb of data, it allowed even though max allowed disk for the account is 10mb.

    Anyone else can duplicate this?

    I'm on cPanel 10.x R-146

    Stop crossposting. You already asked the question once. Why do you have to keep asking the same question again?

    Secret,

    That's what the overselling is meant to do, I thought that as well. That is, a reseller can create accounts with amounts that total more than his/her allowances, but can only use up to the maximum they're allocated.

    I noticed you said "uploaded" - did you test against downloading? I don't know if the limits apply to uploading, I thought they were downloading only.

    If you do not wish for overselling to occur, do not enable overselling.
