How to Modify A Hosting Account Quota In WHM?

Modifying a hosting account quota in WHM (Web Host Manager) involves adjusting the disk space allocation for a specific cPanel account. Here are the steps to do this:

  1. Log in to WHM:
    • Access WHM using your web browser by navigating to https://your-server-ip:2087 (replace “your-server-ip” with the actual IP address of your server).
    • Enter your WHM username and password to log in.
  2. Navigate to Account Functions:
    • In the WHM dashboard, locate and click on “Account Functions” or use the search bar to find it.
  3. Access Quota Modification:
    • Within “Account Functions,” look for and click on “Quota Modification” or “Modify an Account.”
  4. Select the Domain or Username:
    • Choose the cPanel account for which you want to modify the quota. You can either search for the domain or select it from the list.
  5. Adjust Quota Limits:
    • Find the section related to quota modification for the selected account.
    • Adjust the values for “Disk Quota” and “Monthly Bandwidth Transfer” as needed. Enter the new disk space limit in megabytes (MB).
  6. Save Changes:
    • Once you have set the new quota limits, scroll down to the bottom of the page.
    • Click the “Save” or “Save Changes” button to apply the modifications.
  7. Confirm Changes:
    • WHM will display a confirmation message indicating that the changes were saved successfully.
  8. Check cPanel:
    • Log in to the cPanel account associated with the modified quota to verify that the changes have taken effect.

Keep in mind the following considerations:

  • Modifying a hosting account’s quota may affect the overall resource usage on your server. Ensure that the changes align with your server’s capacity and hosting plans.
  • It’s advisable to communicate any changes in disk space allocation to the cPanel account owner or user.

By following these steps, you can easily modify the hosting account quota for a specific cPanel account in WHM.
