    Hello folks!

    I've a - i think often discussed, but can't get through the answers - question
    concerning the MailSpace and WebSpace settings in ISPConfig.

    Now my question is:

    What is the trick to seperate the MailSpace and WebSpace in a way that
    the quota is countet seperately for MailSpace and WebSpace?

    I looked through some "Perfect Server Tuts" and there is something
    about partition scheme and setting the quota in fstab to do the trick
    about spereate mailspace and webspace counting.

    Thanx a lot!

    greets Matthias

    First, you can separate mailspace and webspace but we do not recommend it.

    To separate mailspace and webspace you must install a mbox file capabale pop3 and imap daemon (which are not as stable as the maildir versions in my experience) and then have a separate partiotion for /var/spool/mail which has no quota enabled).

    I add this Post because I think it fits.

    I've installed Maildir but the used Mail Space is not shown in the statistics in the ISPconfig Panel.

    Is there a solution to show the client how much space is used?

    Thanks Niko

    The mailspace is part of the webspace, when you use maildir.

    I know, but there are only web, user, phptmp, log, cgi-bin, ssl and DB:MYSQL shown in the statistic.

    It doesn't seem to count the whole /var/www/webXX/ Directory because the Maildir folder counts in this case 120MB but the statistic shows:
    total space: 500MB
    used space: 16.01MB

    I don't understand this because the Maildir is in the /var/www/webXX/user/USERNAME/Maildir/...

    Please set $go_info["server"]["sudo_du_enabled"] to 1 in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/

    now are also the folders user/, web/,... gone and they don't come back even if I cange it back to 0.

    The sum is also still wrong.

    You will have to configure sudo first to allow the du command executed with root permissions either by the admispconfig user or all users.

    I don't really understand what you mean.
