    Well as far as i've seen files uploaded or created through php do not usually count in the regular quota.

    I have seen accounts using rapidleech, torrent flux and scripts like that getting way over their quota and cpanel not reporting anything. I had to look over ssh and find out who is doing what.

    Now this seems to happen as the ownership of the file is different, but still, there must be a way to fix all this.

    Any ideas?

    Yep, if the ownership of the files are set to "nobody", it will not get reflected in cpanel quota. You will have to set the ownership back to the cpanel username recursively from inside the user directory.
    But be warned that there are scripts that require nobody access to work flawlessly.

    Well the thing is with scripts like that they are able to use as much space as they want.... and without me knowing it... until i check with ssh...

    Any solutions to fix this?
