    Hey I'm trying to install ISPConfig3 on my server and I am getting this error:
    [ERROR] Exception occured: ISPConfigOSException -> Command mount -o remount / 2>&1 && quotaoff -avug 2>&1 && quotacheck -avugm 2>&1 && quotaon -avug 2>&1 failed. (/
    I am using the recommanded automatic installation script:

    When splitting the command and typing in mount -o remount / 2>&1 I am getting a permission denied error eventhough I am root user?

    Thanks in advance!

    Just curious, and may be not relevant, are you installing your server inside a vm or an lxc?

    I rented a vServer. Maybe it only works on dedicated servers?

    Well, I did read about vserver technology a little (which I think is quite old?) so I am not sure whether it is suitable to deploy a full fledged ISPConfig server.

    Anyway, you do not need a dedicated server to run ISPConfig as running it in a vm would do just fine.

    ISPConfig works perfectly fine in virtual machines, all my ISPConfig sytsmes are virtualized. But some virtualization technologies are a bit limited in what they support. The error means that the virtualization technology that your ISP is using does not support Lunux filesystem quota at all or at least it does not support it to configured in /etc/fstab.

    To get around your issue, you must skip the quota config step by appending:


    to the install command, example:

    wget -O - | sh -s -- --use-ftp-ports=40110-40210 --unattended-upgrades --no-quota
