Edit User Quota cPanel

Post by alan.m »

Hello,

I would like to know if there any way to increase the quota for a cPanel user account through SSH? I do not know how to do.

At this moment I am unable to do the same through WHM panel. I only have ssh access to the server.

Please let us know if there any way.

Thanks in knowledge.

Hello,

Yes, it is possible to change the quota of an user from server backend.

1. Log into server via SSH

2. Run the below cPanel script to change the quota

Command : /scripts/editquota username <size>

Example : Do the below to change the quota of a cPanel user 'martin'

/scripts/editquota martin 500M

3. Restart cPanel service : service cPanel restart
