I am trying to reset the counter values to 0 in .ftpquota file for all ftp users on a daily basis in pure-ftpd server .

From manual page I got that we can set the quota limits using the "-n" option in pure-ftpd server . But I could not find how to reset this counter value in the .ftpquota file on a daily/weekly basis .

Is there any commands available for the same ? or do we have to manually edit this file ?

  • Why would you want to set the counters to zero in the first place? Shouldn't you be running pure-quotacheck from a (weekly) crontab instead? That ensures the correct values are used. – HBruijn Nov 18 '16 at 7:09
  • Hi @HBrujin pure-quotacheck I am using . But it will just update the quota file based on the current status of the folder(number of files/size) right . I want to reset the counters back to zero irrespective of the current files present in the ftp upload directory . So I am looking fo any commands to reset the counter to 0 , if there are any . – Mathews Jose Nov 18 '16 at 7:37
