How do I enable quotas and limit their directory stuff to 10 mb?
As in when a user tried to upload stuff in his directory like a file more than 10mb he must be stopped.
install the quota package.
remount the given drive with the usrquota or/and grpquota flag or for
mount -o remount,usrquota partition
permanent change -- edit fstab to add usrquota to the relevant drive/partition
turn quotas on.
set the allowed quotas.
check all quotas
check one users quota
anything else u wanna know, just ask
