    Question Serious problem while fetching quota


    I am receiving the following cpanel error (towards the left hand side column) when I login into an account:

    Disk Space Usage Serious problem while fetching quota data (quota): Bad file descriptor (0) Megabytes.

    I still don't know what went wrong all of a sudden. I did run /scripts/fixquotas through shell but that didn't fix anything either. Here are the errors I got from there:

    Installing Default Quota Databases...../var/tmp/aquota.user..../var/tmp/quota.user.....Done
    WARNING!!! Backup dir is set to /. Unexpected results may occur!!!!
    Quotas are now on
    touch: cannot touch `/var/tmp/quota.user': No such file or directory
    touch: cannot touch `/var/tmp/aquota.user': No such file or directory
    Resetting quota for cptest to 550 M
    No filesystems with quota detected
    It's a VPS. Please help.

    Seems to be an issue with the quota feature of the partition. Check if the usrquota is turned on for the partition in fstab.

    Hello David,

    This is whats inside my etc/fstab:

    none /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
    /tmp /var/tmp ext3 defaults,bind,noauto $
    Are these values correct?

    Anyone? My host (surfspeedy) has refused to provide any support for it and I am stuck.

    Paste the entire contents of /etc/fstab or were those two lines it? :|
