    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,

    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,
