  • Applies to:
  • H-Sphere 3.6.3


My user has 0 MB used out of -1 MB in unlimited files.
Disk Quota shown much more than it actually is in file manager.


This problem is caused by broken web server disk quota.


  1. Log into the web server as root:

    su -
  2. Turn off disk quota:

    quotaoff [hsphere_partition]
    * /hsphere/ usually 
  3. Go to H-Sphere partition and remove files aquota.user and quota.user:

    cd [hsphere_partition]
    rm -f aquota.user quota.user
  4. Update aquota.user and quota.user files:

    quotacheck -m [hsphere_partition]
      * ignore "-m" for Free BSD
  5. Turn on disk quota:

    quotaon [hsphere_partition]
  6. Then log into CP server as root and change to cpanel user:

    su - l cpanel
  7. Reset user defined quotas:

    java -lid [logical_server_id]
