QB 2.4 - How to enable single user quotas?


Independent Quotas

One big request that has been made time and time again is by users who are running either bare metal and/or VM installs in solo mode, i.e; no additional users on the system. When such an environment is being ran, there is no need for quotas as the user will carry the entirety of the disk space.

How do you actually do this? I did make some changes to my setup to get quotas working in 2.3 (editing fstab to add in usrquota, then restarting it all.

So far, I only uninstalled the “quotas” package via the webgui, and now my display is showing me just the quota for /(root), not for /home.

Output of lsblk:

sda 8:0 0 1.8T 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 1004.5K 0 part
├─sda2 8:2 0 19.5G 0 part /
├─sda3 8:3 0 1.8T 0 part /home
└─sda4 8:4 0 511M 0 part [SWAP]

output of fstab:

/dev/sda2 / ext4 errors=remount-ro,relatime 0 1
/dev/sda3 /home ext4 errors=remount-ro,relatime 1 2
/dev/sda4 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
devtmpfs /dev devtmpfs rw 0 0


Follow this topic here as well, a bit more info as to why the forced copy as well as how to set your widget back. Let me know if that sorts it or not.


what I can also advice after following his advice is to do a restart to clear to force it to reload
