    Hi,
    how would i make the quota on a per user basis instead of a site basis.
    e.g give a user 100mb for all sites instead of giving each site 100mb?
    Thanks,
    Alex

    You're talking of customers instead of system users (because only a customer in ISPConfig can have multiple web sites).
    Because a customer is an ISPConfig-only user, but no system user, this isn't possible.

    So can the linux system quota only be placed on users and not on directorys?

    Yes. Quota can only assigned to users and groups, not to directories.

    linux userquota = ISPConfig userquota
    linux groupquota = ISPConfig website quota

    Linux does not support hierarchical quotas, so you can not have a groupquota nested inside another group quota or in other words, a group can not be a member of another group.

    if i made so that all a users sites were in 1 group then applied a quota would that work?

    Yes, but you will loose the capability to have any website quotas.

    You will have to rewrite large parts of the server code. It is too complicated to explain this here in the forum, please have a look at the files in /root/ispconfig/scripts/ and the subfolders.

    Will only scripts in that folder /root/ispconfig/scripts/ need rewriting or will the folders in /home/admispconfig also need rewriting?

    This depends on your interface implementation as /home/admispconfig conatins only interface files. I guess you will have to chnage a few files in /home/admispconfig too.

    Does anything rely on the group of the site?

    So if i just change the line where it sets the group when it creates and edits the site, will it make anything else stop working?

    Thanks,
    Alex
