Fstab Fail - Perfect Server Ubuntu 11.10
 
Clearly, I made an error on step 16.

The problem is that I am locked out of my server now.

Consider the following…

Code:

root@rule303:/etc/courier# vi /etc/fstab
root@rule303:/etc/courier# mount -o remount /
root@rule303:/etc/courier# quotacheck -avugm
-bash: /sbin/quotacheck: Permission denied
root@rule303:/etc/courier#  ln -s /dev/xvda /dev/root
-bash: /bin/ln: Permission denied
root@rule303:/etc/courier# ln -s /dev/xvda /dev/root
-bash: /bin/ln: Permission denied
root@rule303:/etc/courier# vi /etc/fstab
-bash: /usr/bin/vi: Permission denied
root@rule303:/etc/courier#

Root is denied. At first, I thought it was a problem with the quota instructions so I read the comments on the page. I don't think it was the quota command. I think I screwed up the fstab file.

Is there any way around this or will I have to start from scratch?

It's dead. Must start over. Thanks for looking. Hopefully, the third time's the charm.
