Set up disk quotas in ubuntu|
Posted March 19, 2008
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,usrquota,errors=remount-ro 0 1
Remount the filesystem to enable quotas.
sudo mount -o remount,usrquota /
Create the quota file ("-m" forces quotacheck to do this while the filesystem is mounted read/write, so you don't have to disrupt any services in order to do this step).
sudo quotacheck -F vfsv0 -c -a -v -m
quotacheck will say something like this.
quotacheck: Scanning /dev/hda1 [/] done quotacheck: Cannot stat old user quota file: No such file or directory quotacheck: Old group file not found. Usage will not be substracted. quotacheck: Checked 19055 directories and 136735 files quotacheck: Old file not found.
Turn on quota checking.
sudo quotaon -a
Edit a user's quota.
sudo edquota username
