KB: 05112013-001: Webhosting management fails to add a new hosting reporting an error about quotas


When trying to create a hosting inside Webhosting management, it fails with an error similar to:

setquota: Cannot open quotafile /home/aquota.user: Permission denied
setquota: Not all specified mountpoints are using quota.

Affected releases



Restart quota system. To do so you can use one the following methods:

  1. Run the following command if you have easy access to a root shell on the server:
    >> /etc/init.d/quota restart
  2. You can restart the service using “Process and services viewer”, by selecting “quota” service under unmanaged services. After selecting, use the restart option available.
