    I can't get anything to work anymore, I think I misconfigured quota, and now everything I do ends up in an error message that says that my harddrive is too full... I only use 18 % of it... I'm having to many problems with this system and I want to migrate... however I need an easy way to backup database files, mysql won't even start...

    If it's possble to completely disable quota's that would also be cool...

    You don't believe my stupidity in this case...
    yesterday the harddisk usage was on 18%...
    but because of a bug in a script I use, Owncloud, it took an avi file of 40 mb and replicated it until it filled out my whole harddisk which is 150 gb's.

    Which is the reason my server failed, So people! even your own sites... put a limit on them to prevent these desasters.

    I was thinking it could not possibly fill all that space so there had to be a mistake in the quota system (since I already have problems with it)...
    But there was a bug in owncloud! after deleting the owncloud instance with all the data everything worked again.

    Thanks for this awesome community though!
