What is 'Edit Owner Limits' for when you have 'Account Plans'

OS type and version Ubuntu Linux 22.04.3
Webmin version 2.101
Usermin version 2.001
Virtualmin version 7.8.2
Theme version 21.04
Package updates All installed packages are up to date

This is definitely a newbie question.

If all account permissions are set in an account template,
(Virtualmin → System settings → Account Plans),

what role does ‘Edit Owner Limit’ serve?
(Virtualmin → Administration Options → Edit Owner Limits)

Am I missing something, or is this a duplication of settings?


Plans = default settings when domain is created
Edit owner limits = edit them afterwords if required

If you edit the Virtual server you have the following option which will overwrite the options?


What happens if you only want to change 1 server on the plan ?

As a temporary override, maybe, otherwise it should be on another plan.

Saves me time keeping plans to a minimum and tweaking domains as required as I dont even think of what plan I’m using as i only have one when a domain is created but each to their own

Account Plans are system wide.
Edit owner limits is for that domain only and override System plans for that domain.
