    I just got my first Web server up, SuSE 9.2 with Apache2. Now my question is how can I set a limit as to how much space is available for a web site that I put on my server? Like it is limited to 50 megs of space.

    Thanks for your help.

    First, you have to enable quota on your system. Have a look at the quota section here: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_suse_9.2

    To set quotas for a user or group, use the setquota command (see "man setquota" for more information), e.g.:

    setquota -g $group $blocks $blocks 0 0 -a
    setquota -u $username $blocks $blocks 0 0 -a

    Replace $group, $username and $blocks. Note: $blocks is the quota size in MB * 1024! To deactivate quotas for a user or group, run these commands and set $blocks to 0.
