Well I've already tried a few forums with no replies yet, might as well try here. . .
It's pretty straight forward. I'm on an OpenVZ VPS with OVH. Trying to get quotas enabled for my first time. It's a project with a good purpose.
Got 26 users, need to limit them to 300MB space on the VPS a piece within their home directory.
So I try to follow this guide:
I can't get halfway through without running into an issue :/ Pretty sure it's just a simple limitation with OpenVZ, and I'll need to find some
other way, but maybe not. Maybe I'm just ignorant, and someone can help me out here.
Quota was already installed, so I cd into /etc/fstab. I added this line:
LABEL=DOROOT / ext4 errors=remount-ro,usrquota 0 1
then went for:
mount -o remount /
however; permission denied was response. I'm guessing this is a hard limit... i'm root on the VPS, should have all access, except this is
paravirtualization, openvz... so am I just scrooged here, or not going about this the correct way?
Other thought I had was to attempt to create 26 additional partitions, and only give access to 1 a pop each user, at 300MB per partition, but that
seems kinda silly, and still not sure even possible on OpenVZ.
I need this done, ASAP. Got work to do on the web developing end, and start school next Tuesday. I got this coming weekend to slam this out. Any help
would be GREAT!!LY Appreciated.
PS if this went over your head, don't feel bad. Not many people know this kinda stuff... I'm still learning.
