What happens when disk quota gets exceeded?

    We have a use case where a client wants a site which exceeds disk quota, to not get disabled. So the site should remain reachable for visitors. I searched the forums and apparently there is a nightly cron job which disables sites which are exceeding quota. Is there an option to disable that behaviour?
    If this option does not yet exist, can you point me to the cron job in the codebase?

    I would say it is easier to disable quota for that user, or set the quota to unlimited.

    @Taleman Thanks, that would be easy, but unfortunately would not meet our requirements. We still want the quota to be active, but we just want it to 'soft fail'. User should not be able to add data to their disk, but at the same time the website must remain reachable.

    Have you checked the code to make sure the offending sites really are disabled? I do not know of such thing.
    But anyway, can you perhaps play with soft and hard limits and grace periods, to get the effect you want? ISPConfig manual chapter Website quota (Harddisk)

    Sites do not get disabled when Disk quota is exceeded. When the site got disabled, then it exceeded the traffic quota and not the disk quota.
