Question Partitioning in CentOs

I am novice in CentOs.
I install VMware workstation and then install CentOs on it.
I am going to install ISPconfig 3 and following this tutorial:
When I installed CentOs in VMware the obtions for cofiguring was so low and I can not do partitioning.
Now in stage 8 : Qouta, there is a warning line that says :
(If you have chosen a different partitioning scheme than I did, you must adjust this chapter so that quota applies to the partitions where you need it.)
How can I understand which partition I installed past stages?
Thanks for replay and sorry for man bad English.

I think you can check that in fstab
cat /etc/fstab
or open it with some text editor to check your partitions

If you're using Centos 7 the installer screens for storage and disk setup are less than straightforward, but you can adjust partitioning during the installation. CentOS will set up LVM logical volumes by default, with most of the free disk space going to /home. I don't like that, so in the installer I usually remove the default home partition and put the space in a single large root / partition instead.

It's more work to repartition after centos is installed. You should follow the ispconfig instructions for partitioning. Most ispconfig data is under /var and the default CentOS will put var on a pretty small partition.

That should be CentOS 6.6. Please upgrade.

Yes you can. All you have to do is find out what partitions are mounted, what file system is used (look for the value after "type"):
then use that value (usually "ext4"), for example:
df -t ext4 -mh
to see the size of each partition. Then you need to determine what storage limits you would like to set. If unsure post output from both commands as well as your proposed quotatab modifications.

*Do note there's a CentOS-centric forum here:


centos6, ispconfig
