Make users not able to upload more than 1GB


Hi. Im sure this is an easy question, but I have never done this before.
I use VSFTPD and have configured it as i want. Exept one thing.
I want my users to not be able to upload more than 1 GB of files to their home directory.

I read something about "Disk Quota" in the kernel once, but I'm not sure if thats it.

Anyone know how to do?

Google "Linux quota howto" and you'll find a bunch of documents that explain how to do it. If you are familiar with at least basic Linux commands then you should be able to do it in minutes. If you are not familiar with basic Linux commands then you may want to do a little more familiar; else buy me a first class round trip to Maui and I'll tell you all about it.
