install issue
Hi folks,

I'm trying to install ISPconf 3 on my VPS. I get so far, then I have a problem. I'm following this howto.

When I issue --> nano /etc/fstab, I get this:

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0

/dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 1

Then I issue, which works --> mount -o remount /


root@pandora:/home/pharox# quotacheck -avugm
quotacheck: Cannot find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.

I've emailed my vps provider and made sure quotas is enabled, which it is. I have a vps running debian 6 32bit and the vps CP is SolusVM.

Any idea where I am going wrong?

The usrquota,grpquota options are missing in the mount output, which means quota is not enabled. Please contact your VPS provider again.
