I d like to share something i have found & i have not found threads about it.

On my debian 7, i have discovered the number of inodes and disk usage were wrong for my users, (inodes=2 for all user accounts).

It was not related to the quota module but it was related to a bad parameter in directadmin.conf


i changed

quota_partition=/
to
quota_partition=/home


because on debian like on ubuntu, user accounts are under /home

then i restarted directadmin

and i did

echo "action=tally&value=all" >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue

Hello,

It does not depend on what distro you use. It depends only on what partition scheme you use, whether or not you use a separate partition for /home. OpenVZ based VPS usually have only one partition / for example.
