I am following this tutorial to set up my VPS and install ISPConfig with quota support. The tutorial asks me to run:

touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
chmod 600 /aquota.*
mount -o remount /
quotacheck -avugm
quotaon -avug

However, when I run quotacheck -avugm it says the command quotacheck is not found: -bash: quotacheck: command not found

So I had a Google, apparently quotacheck is in /sbin/, so I'd have to run it from /sbin/, so I did /sbin/quotacheck -avugm, still same, did an ls -s on /sbin, it isn't there. Had a look at the $PATH, /sbin is included.

How can I still run this?

You need to install the package that includes the quota tools. Google suggests it is the quota package that you want.
