[solved] VPS + Virtualmin quota issue
Went to move a site from a shared environment to less shared :) and came against this issue.
Once the VPS was setup for LAMP + Virtualmin I attempted to create a "server" within Virtualmin and kept getting weird errors about quota. Seems this VPS (through burst.net) is using veQuota to manage mounts. The solution is really simple:
Login to Virtualmin and do the following.
- Webmin -> Hardware group -> Disk & Network Filesystems
- Select "Module Config"
- Change "File listing filesystems mounted at boot time" to /etc/mtab (was /etc/fstab).
Then quotas work for the entire filesystem: /
No need to make any changes to /etc/mtab or /etc/fstab.
