cPanel Quota Issue

Categories General Info

Hello,

Recently there has been issues on some cPanel servers when attempting to obtain the disk quota for specific users. The problem is that it would return N/A in the cPanel account when looking at disk usage. Same result would appear when trying to get disk space for the user manually in the command line:

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/quota $user

cPanel confirmed that the issue is a bug and they have created an internal report on it. For the time being, they are reporting that they were able to temporarily fix the issue by doing the following:

Inside of the file called /usr/local/cpanel/bin/quota. Change this block
from:

}
print $header, $out if $out;
Quota::endmntent();
return 0;
}

To:

}
print $header, $out if $out;
Quota::endmntent();
return run_quota($uid) if scalar %$seen && !$out;

return 0;
}

The only thing that you are really doing here is adding this line:
"return run_quota($uid) if scalar %$seen && !$out;"
