    Quotas fixed on some, still unlimited on others...

    After following these instructions and updating to the latest cPanel/WHM several accounts were fixed but a few still have the unlimited quota issue.

    Has anyone got any ideas on this? Its been bugging me for over a week now.

    Running Centos 5, WHM 11.11.0, cPanel 11.16.0-R18450

    Thanks -Dan

    This continues to be an ongoing issue for us. In fact, the quotas resetting themselves to "unlimited" problem has been around for a very long time. I think cpanel would argue that the issue is with the quotas system and not with cPanel itself, nevertheless, its a common and repetetive issue on cpanel servers. I've been on a few linux user forums and I've not seen anyone complaining about quotas being reset on servers not running cpanel.

    I'm back here in the forums again because I've got yet another server where all the accounts are showing as "unlimited". Usually I run /scripts/fixquotas and this resolves it - until the next time it happens. Its very anoyying because any customers who have purchased extra disk space end up being reset back to the quota for their particular plan, so we end up with complaints that they have run out of space.

    I notice there are a great number of forum posts from people who had this problem, used the info in this article or another and considered the issue resolved. I would argue that the problem is never resolved and will always return later. Judging by the volume of people who experience this, I'd say its a widespread issue that demands some attention from the cpanel developers.

    This worked exactly as it was said it would. We were having the disk usage showing 0MB for all of our accounts, and quota as unlimited for most of the accounts. Did as explained and everything worked perfect. :D

    Thank you CollateralFX

    VPS Quota Problems

    Hi,

    I can't follow the above tutorial because I'm on a VPS.
    My fstab has
    Code:
    none    /dev/pts        devpts  rw      0       0
    My datacenter has enabled level 2 quotas and I still get
    Code:
    No filesystems with quota detected.
    when ever I try to run /scripts/fixquotas.

    I tried to change the /etc/sysconfig/vz-scripts/3.conf file but this doesn't exist in my VPS.

    My Server is CENTOS 5.4 x86_64
    cPanel 11.25.0-R43473 is my cPanel version.

    Does anyone have a solution for VPSs?

    Thanks,
    Adam.

    Hello:

    This works for me:

    Enable Second-level Quotas

    In Main Server:

    stop container

    The session below turns on second-level quotas for Container 101:





    /scripts/fixquotas
