I have multiple ftp accounts at my host and I want a program or script that will let me set a specific amount of space for each ftp account. Is there anything like this?

Not sure which langauge you prefer but you could checkout some of the script sites CGI Resources and look under "File Management" or "Web Site Maintenance" for limiting uploads.

Generally this is done with system quotas... which are user based. You would need to have a separate user (system level) for each virtual FTP account, which would be quite challenging.

I have heard of some free scripts that will use passive methods to enforce a space quota, but it's not going to be fail-safe.

What FTP program are you using? wuftpd or proftpd? You may be able to configure the limits from within that depending on which one you are using.

I meant...

I didn't mean which FTP program you were using remotely, I meant the one your server is running. You can configure this into the config files and then use mod_quota like Matt suggested above .
