Regarding the Fedora Core 5 Perfect Install - Quota
 
I'm not real proficient at Linux yet (newbie) and I guess my install is a bit less than perfect. I'm trying to install Fedora Core 5 and ISPConfig by going through "The Perfect Install". When I try to create files in the root directory like so:

touch /aquota.user /aquota.group

I get the following errors:

touch: cannot touch `/aquota.user': Permission denied
touch: cannot touch `/aquota.group': Permission denied

I think these go into the directory or partition that you want Quota to run in, don't you? Wouldn't the fstab file need to reflect that directory or partition also? Anyone have any advice on what I need to do to get this working?

Thanks and Regards,
EricS

You must run all the commans from the tutorial as root user!

The tutorial explains what you have to add to /etc/fstab. :)

Thanks for the reply.

I am logged in as 'root' and have not added any other users that the packages have not added. If I cannot create the Quota files in the root directory(/) and have to put them in another directory like www or home then the information in the fstab file won't be accurate either.

[root@server named]# touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
touch: cannot touch `/aquota.user': Permission denied
touch: cannot touch `/aquota.group': Permission denied

EricS

:confused: If you are root, it must work.
What's the output of
Code:

ls -la /
?

Ok, now it worked. Thanks.
