    You dont have to configure quota inside of a vm when you use openvz as quota on a openvz system is provided by vzquota on the host system. Search for quota in openvz wiki, they have some explanations and articles on how to configure it.

    By setting a UGID limit for the container on the host system, you are able to use the regular quota tools in the guest container OS.

    If you don't have access to the host node your container is running on, you will need to get a hold of your hosting company and ask if they will do it for you.

    Path to what? You want the command for openvz? If your hosting company knows what they are doing, they will know what you are talking about.

    As I said, a GUID limit just needs to be set for your container. By default it is set to "0", which equals "disabled", which is why you can't do quotas on your filesystem.

    If you'd like to find out how it works, you can do as till suggested and read up on it on the OpenVZ wiki.

    That means you don't have to do anything further. Except enable the quota like the guide tells your of course.
