  • We enable quotas by default on new installations.
  • If you disable and then reenable quotas, servers that use the XFS® filesystem and run CentOS 7, CloudLinux™ 7, or Red Hat® Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 require additional actions for quotas to function properly:
    • WHM Interface — Use WHM's Initial Quota Setup interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Initial Quota Setup) to configure quotas.
    • Command Line — Run the /scripts/fixquotas script and then reboot the server.
    • Manually via the Command Line — For instructions on how to perform the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/fixquotas script's actions manually, read the Red Hat XFS and XFS Quota Management documentation.
  • If you have enabled Quota System Administration notifications, the system sends notifications when it is ready to reboot and when the quota scan finishes and quotas are functional.
  • CloudLinux 7 updates may break quotas. For this reason, after each CloudLinux 7 update, you must run the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/fixquotas script and then reboot the server.
