    Webserver with quota


    It's been a while since I've configured a webserver with quota so I was just wondering what people use to keep track on their customers diskusage these days?

    I'm setting up a webserver with about 100 costumers and I need to configure it so that they can't use up more diskspace than they've payed for.

    I've read about proftpd's quota support but I'm wondering what happens when they upload directly from their webpage? For example a lot of CMS panels allow the user to upload stuff to the server, will that be calculated in the used quota?

    I'm going to run Apache on a Debian server probably but nothing is decided yet so please recommend anything that I could use for quota support!

    just disk space or are you asking about bandwidth usage? For disk space only:

    personally I prefer Ubuntu server over Debian, many will disagree though

    For disk usage only, there's no reason to use anything other than regular quota(1). It's nice also to run warnquota( to mail users over quota.
