    I am running Ubuntu Bionic Beaver on a virtualbox and trying to follow the perfect setup instructions. I am trying to edit /etc/fstab, but my file looks very different from the example and I am not sure what to add/edit:

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    # / was on /dev/sda2 during curtin installation
    /dev/disk/by-uuid/202eca66-1aa8-4bc7-b5fd-c6d631d184e3 / ext4 defaults 0 0
    /swap.img none swap sw 0 0
    Please help. Thanks.

    What is your question about?
    Guessing your refer to ISPConfig installation guide, and adding guota:
    You need to add the quota stuff after the options in the fstab line. So replace the string "defaults" with
