Virtualmin quotas not work after upgrade

Hi there,

I’ve installed Virtualmin GPL about 2 months ago. When I’ve installed the system, everything works fine and this is my partition table:

/dev/sda1 /

/dev/sdb1 /home

/dev/sdc1 /var/log
/dev/sdc2 /var/lib/mysql

After I’ve upgraded to the new version of Virtualmin, quota says me: “Quotes are not turn on on /, that contains /home. Quotes modify are disabled”. Initially I’ve turned on quotas only in /home (rw, usrquota, grpquota) but not in /. Now I’m not able to use quotas and the quota that I’ve setting up was lost!

Someone can help me?!?!?!



What is the output of the command “mount”?

I forgot to remember: before I do the upgrade, Virtualmin was working perfectly with quotas only on /home in a different disk. It’s just when I’ve upgraded that all quotas was losts and gave me that problem.


There were a number of fixes in the Webmin release that was just pushed out. Could you try upgrading Webmin, and see if that resolves the issue you’re seeing?



thank you Eric to supporting me. Now I’m trying to update all the packages on the server, even Webmin even Virtualmin. Give me 2 hours and I’ll back with the informations.

Thank you so much
