    * Account over quota (cpanel + pure-ftpd)

    Hello,

    I need some help...

    One of my customer is over quota (he use 30 megs, but his limit it's 25 megs). Moreover, he is still able to upload file via ftp...

    The server runs Cpanel 9.2 with Pure-ftpd.

    Do you know how to correct this problem?

    Best regards.

    I am not sure if there is an option for hard and soft quotas in cpanel but that is something to take a look at. Also, make sure that you have quota support compiled into your kernel.

    Hi,

    The hard and soft are the same (25 megs). The grace period was 7 days, I changed it for 5 minutes...But the user is still able to upload new files. The quota support is compiled into my kernel.

    Regards.

    This is a known problem. Nothing much you can do I believe except to switch to pro-ftpd.

    do you know why?
    this limit should be enforced by the filesystem, not by the ftp server

    You can compile pure-ftpd by hand and use

    --with-sysquotas
    in the configure line. This will fix it.
