Default Unable to install (permissions and quota problem)

I'm getting the following error when installing Ispconfig 3

chown: changing ownership of `/var/www/apps': Disk quota exceeded

chown: changing ownership of `/usr/local/bin/run-getmail.sh': Disk quota exceeded

But if I do df -h I have enough space.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/hdv1 76G 22G 54G 29% /

and If I want to visit the webpage I get you do not have permission access to access / on this server

I'm running debian lenny and I have followed the perfect server howto on the site. Everything except the quota section is installed but I cannot get ISPConfig working.

nothing, no output at all.

$ repquota -avug
$

also edquota gives me: No filesystems with quota detected.

I am able to create new users, new files, chown dirs and change the ownership to those new users. so that's not an issue.

could there be a problem with the creation of those groups/users in the Install script of ISPConfig?

and I have checked the ispconfig installation log again: the only things that I see in there that did not work are the two chown actions

WARNING: Failed to execute the command chown -R ispconfig:ispconfig /usr/local/ispconfig
WARNING: Failed to execute the command chown -R getmail /etc/getmail

what puzzles me is that the other Chown commands work just fine. Only for these two it fails.

because: EXECUTED: chown -R vmail:vmail /var/vmail/.mailfilter
works just fine

ok, I chowned /usr/local/ispconfig to www-data:ispconfig and I can now access ISPConfig.
I hope I did not compromise security doing the above. I'm not really sure why ispconfig:ispconfig and getmail give me disk quota errors when chowning.

Are the users ispconfig and getmail listed in /etc/passwd?

As which user were you logged in as you installed ispconfig? You must be logged in as root user, using sudo or any other user will not work when you install ispconfig.
