Hello


I have enabled reseller limit by Resource Usage then ticked "Overselling Allowed" .

But i don't understand something , for example i have set 100 MB limit for disk space and reseller accounts actually used 150 MB , but not thing happened for reseller accounts , reseller can't create new account but current accounts working fine and able to upload more files !

please guide me in this regard.

Thanks

Hello,

This is by design. The limitation won't disable existing accounts, but rather it prevents the creation of new accounts. Here's a snippet from the Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges - Documentation - cPanel Documentation document:

For example, if overselling is enabled for you, and you allocate 500 MB of disk space to the reseller, that reseller may still set up disk quotas of 300 MB each for two users. Combined, the two users can use 600 MB; however, when their combined disk space usage exceeds 500 MB, the reseller can no longer add new accounts.
Thank you.
