When i created my Linux server i set up a mounted filesystem so i could do disk quotas. I have a 120gb hard drive on my system and i want to allocate about 100gb for the users. Now i set each user up to have 2 gb of space in this folder that is mounted. The problem that i am having is the folder is only allowing 99mb combined for everyone. I was curious why that is happening and how to i change that?
Originally posted by mdk3 ok i just loaded the linux box so the config is default the way it is installed on Fedora core 3. I followed the tutorial then i installed webmin, fpse2002,pureftp, and then i set my qutoas in webmin.
I have done nothing else.
I take it your not going to be posting any configuration files
And why are you telling us you used webmin.. that doesn't help us. Can you post more details please of requota output and the actual files you edited from the howto? If not, we can't help you as we can't guess why its not doing what you want it to be doing..
this is where i believe my problem lies. The users are in the websites folder. which is apparently using the same space as the boot if i am reading this right.
I would like it to be using the 100G that vol00 is using. Sorry about all this i am still trying to learn.
Then thing is the users are actually websites. This is a web server and according to my book fedora finds the websites under /var/www
Is there a way to tell fedora to look somewhere else instead of that directory.
When the users login to their account over FTP or FPSE it takes them to /var/www/websites/'user folder' So if i dont mount /var/www/website then i cant put quotas on the user.
Again thanks for the help
If you unmount /var/www/websites it'll still be there, just without the files currently in it. So back them up, unmount it (you definately shouldn't have websites and /boot sharing space anyway) and restore it into the /var/www/websites directory which now resides on /
I was thinking about just moving the folders to the 100g filesystem. The problem which i have (which probably isnt really a problem but i just cant think straight) is if i umount the /var/www/websites then i lose my quotas because it has to be mounted in order to have quotas, or am i totally wrong on that.
