i am using : cPanel WHM on Centos 6 2 gb ram 40gb ssd.

I got a mail from my server with the following text.

Cannot open quotafile //aquota.user: No such file or directory.

Has anyone a clue what it is?

I've come across this error on some managed systems I've worked with. Typically, this means cPanel is expecting user quotas to be enabled, however this also requires that your file system support quotas (e.g. the partition is mounted with quotas enabled ).

This cPanel post has great information on quotas in the cPanel environment and checking the fstab to ensure they are enabled. Hope this helps.
