HOWTO - Fix Quotas

The first step in troubleshooting is quotas is to ensure your server supports quotas.

In Linux, look for "usrquotas", for instance:

 /dev/hda5 on /tmp type ext3 (rw,usrquota)
To do this on FreeBSD, type the command:

Look for "with quotas", for instance:

 /dev/ad0s1h on /home (ufs, local, with quotas, soft-updates)
or, in /etc/fstab:

enter the command

more /etc/fstab
Look for

 /dev/ad0s1h	 /usr	 ufs	 rw,userquota,groupquota 2	 2

If you do not find that quotas are supported in /etc/fstab, you'll have to add them, than ensure the kernel is also compiled to support them. For compiling kernel with quota support please refer to here
Next, you must ensure the quota files are present, and not corrupt, to do this look for the files aquota.user or quota.user in Linux, or only quota.user in FreeBSD. If you do not find these files, you can execute the script by entering the command :

If you do find these files, however quotas still are not working, you should execute the script by entering the command :
