Apparantly the block device (/pts) is incorrect. I have to find one on CentOS 5 but have no way of locating one. Any ideas?

othellotech I tried that but didn't work. I'll review the fstab manual pages as you suggest. Thanks for your help.

fdisk -l and see what block devices you have, but would guess it is going to be /dev/sda{1-3] or /dev/hda{1-3}

fdisk -l "cannot open /proc/partitions"

I went into the file manager and the directory doesn't exist. Neither is there any linux documentation on the server. /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt.
doesn't exist, /usr/src is there but nothing after that.

I'm starting to think my upstream provider is lame. Correct me if I'm wrong please.

I'm thinking that I may move my domains off this VPS to a reseller account I have for now and begin looking for an upstream provider that can give me a VPS that actually works.

Is this an OpenVZ based VPS? If so, I know quota is possible, I'm just not verse with it in OpenVZ, I really only use it in Xen for cPanel VPS, but I'm sure with some creative googling you can find what you are after.

Hostigation it may very well be since I login to Virtuozzo (Parallels Plesk) to manage the "Container" (server). The OS is CentOS 5.4. I've referred to their documentation but nothing works and the provider of this VPS insists that it's possible to do what I need to with the edquota command. I've tried several things yet nothing is working.

I checked wikipedia and it appears that this is OpenVZ:

OpenVZ is the basis of Virtuozzo Containers, a proprietary software product provided by Parallels, Inc. OpenVZ is licensed under the GPL version 2 and is supported and sponsored by Parallels whereas the company does not offer commercial end-user support for OpenVZ.

My provider can't even figure this out. I may reinstall the container and see if that fixes everything.

It seems that you have to get the higher techs behind the server before you get anyone knowledgable. In my first support ticket I asked them if they had level 2 quotas turned on for my VPS. So I posted more pointed questions today and the lower level techies didn't have the answers and moved it up for the level two techs who finally after several hours replied that they do not offer level 2 quotas with their VPS plans. I thought it is rather lame since that is something that's supposed to be part of the OS and is independent of other platforms on that machine.

So now my option is to begin seeking another hosting provider.

Apparantly there is an option in Plesk to set resource limitations. So this may solve my problem after all. Even though the tech support isn't the best at my upstream provider it may work out. I had located another provider that seemed good but when I visited their forums it was full of complaints of people having to wait several DAYS for any kind of response. So this is an issue also.

The other issue is that my sitebuilder was working when the VPS was first set up, but now files have misteriously disappeared from there and I have no clue as to why.

I did begin moving files to my other server thinking I would discontinue this VPS but as long as there is a way to set limits I may end up keeping it and just try and figure out a way to fix sitebuilder.

When I ran my linux server in the past I owned the whole server and I didn't have virtuozzo or Plesk or anything, I simply edited the server configuration files manually. Granted it was a longer process, but it worked every time.

So if I can fix the sitebuilder, I'll discontinue my other server instead since that has Plesk on it as well and I really should set up a server that offers cpanel so I can offer customers a choice.

In the Parallels Plesk Panel when I click on the Desktop link I get a 404 error and the domain showing on it is not the domain it is supposed to be. It's showing another hosted domain so I wonder if the problem with sitebuilder is simply a misconfiguration. And if so I wonder if there is a bug in Plesk since I know that I didn't do anything manually that might have caused this.

If anyone has any ideas I would certainly appreciate it.
