    I'm trying to setup my first ispconfig box. I use a shared disk through NFS for my document root, etc.

    So I want to use quota over NFS.
    What I have done:

    On NFS server:

    installed quota package
    touch /share1/quota.user /share1/quota.group

    # fstab
    /dev/sda5 /share1 ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 0 1

    mount -o remount /share1
    quotacheck -avugm
    quotaon -avug

    Now.... What have I to do on client side?

    as far as I know you can not use quota like this over nfs, as the users created by ispconfig are not available in /etc/passwd on the nfs server.

    ah... so quota over NFS is not supported by ispconfig? Maybe using NIS could do the trick?

    This has nothing to do with ISPConfig. Quota over NFS is not supported by Linux if both servers dont share the smae user accounts.

    NIS might work, but I never tried it.

    I will try to implement NIS. I will post a minihowto in this topic when done.
    Just to know, how ispconfig use quota? I noticed a cron entry twice a day that call /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/quota_msg.php

    repquota -au
    repquota -ag

    That's all?

    ISPConfig sets the quota for every user and website if a user is created or modified.

    scripts/lib/config.lib.php using setquota?

    So it's setquota and repquota. Any other?

    No, these are the two commands.
