Quick Fix – an easy way to fix quota issues in CPanel

Cpanel/WHM sometimes has problems with the user quota files causing all users accounts to have unlimited disk space available or 0 megs of disk space in use. This obviously confuses your customers and doesn’t show a real representation of actual disk space being used by your clients. This guide will take you through fixing any quota issues with Cpanel manually or automated.

Common reasons for quota problems
– There are files owned by the same user elsewhere on the server
– The backup directory is being counted towards the users disk quota
– Extra log files are being counted towards the users quota
– Cpanel was just updated and the quotas are now unlimited
