Cpanel quotas

WHM/Cpanel, a popular commercial web-based control panel for Linux, has a tendency to overwrite the special quota files in the VE context. I am referring to:

lrwxr-xr-x     1 root root    39 Jun  8 17:27 -> /proc/vz/vzaquota/00000073/
lrwxr-xr-x     1 root root    38 Jun  8 17:27 aquota.user -> /proc/vz/vzaquota/00000073/aquota.user

The result of these being overwritten will be WHM showing "unlimited" quota reports for all users in the system. An quick solution to this is to run these commands from within the VE as root:

rm -f /aquota.user 2>/dev/null
rm -f / 2>/dev/null
for x in `find /proc/vz/vzaquota/ | tail -2 `; do ln -s $x / ; done
