Thanks for the response Falko,

Glad to hear about the language thing not being a issue. I had read in one of my books that Debian was created by a gentleman from Germany, so I just assumed it was German in origin lol

Now onto the commands you pasted.

When I try to download those debs I get 404 errors. I poked around the folder trees and just couldn't find those deb files.

I did find the same file name on Google.


Since Ubuntu is Debian based would these files work?

Thanks as always,

Just go to the directory where the packages are from (e.g. http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/v/vzctl/ in case of http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool....3-1_amd64.deb ) and download the new packages - from time to time there are updates, that's why some links don't work anymore.

I have downloaded the following to Containers:



In /etc/apt/preferences I put the following:

Package: quota
Pin: version 4*
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: quotatool
Pin: version 1.4*
Pin-Priority: 1001
I just changed the pin versions to match debs I downloaded.

I downloaded:


Now when I installed this it gave me a message about Openvz already running, however dpkg --list 'vzctl' shows it as installed. I rebooted just to be safe.

I made the changes in the VM conf file. So now I *SHOULD* haVE quota for VM itself.

Now my question is how to get quotas on the ISPConfig CLIENTS inside the VM. I only have my sites plus a site for my brother in law and a site for my stepdad who is always installing crappy stuff. I would really like quota to work for him as a client so he cant fill the whole VM with garbage lol

I have read some about second level quotas in openvz but don't quite understand the commands required to set it up.

Also on the VM I obviously can't set up the fstab file but do I still type these commands from the perfect server tutorial?

mount -o remount /

quotacheck -avugm
quotaon -avug
Finally one last question just for Linux in general?

I downloaded quota for Lenny at:


and downloaded vzctl for Wheezy at:



The URLS look the same to me, how does one know when downloading something for Linux whether they getting Lenny Stuff, Squeeze stuff, or Wheezy stuff??

I truly believe Linux is a conspiracy to confuse the hell out of me lol

Thanks as always,
