Hello,

You need to be using ssh and logged in as root.

type:

perl -pi -e 's/quota_limit = 10240/quota_limit = 20480/' /var/www/html/webmail/inc/config.php;

change 20480 to whatever you want (thats 20 meg)

k i see i used putty.exe, and i did SSH fusioncartoons.com for the IP or Server thing. Then it says log in as i did the username (fusion) i have, and then it says password for fusion@fusioncartoons.com. I typed password and it keeps saying accesss denied. ??? What do i do? Its the correct password becuase fusioncartoons.com:2222/ log in as fusion and password works. hmm

Hello,

You need root access. The login would be:

Login: root
Password: <whatever the root password is>

If you don't know the root password, then either
1) you don't have root access
2) you have to contact your server provider to get it
3) you forgot it :) (bad)

Fusioncartoons,

Is the server yours? Are you the server admin? Or a reseller, or just a domain owner (user)?

You most own or rent the entire server to get the root password.

Otherwise you have to talk to your reseller (who may or may not have to talk to the admin).
