Question

Quotas are not enabled on the filesystem, Quota editing has been disabled.

Quotas are not enabled on the filesystem / which contains home directories under /home and email files under /home.

I just upgrade my droplet from 512 MB RAM to 1 GB RAM. I am using virtualmin now, when I “re-check configuration” I found this :

Quotas are not enabled on the filesystem / which contains home directories under /home and email files under /home. Quota editing has been disabled.

I tried to log in webmin -> system -> Disk Quotas -> Enable Quotas, but I found :

Failed to turn on quotas : quotaon: using //aquota.user on /dev/disk/by-label/DOROOT [/]: No such process quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel. 

Please help me to fix this.

How To Enable User and Group Quotas

Any progress with this ? I’m having the same problem running Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS with Virtualmin.

Log in to your droplet as root or as a user with sudo access and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get install linux-image-$(uname -r)
sudo poweroff

Then boot your droplet from the control panel.
