  • moving file storage location/quotas

    So, I have a raid array and I want all my OX files to be stored there. it's mounted at /media/RAID. I don't know where all my OX files are stored and haven't been able to locate them. Also I'd like to turn quotas off, or at least manage them for my users and oxadmin doesn't appear to do that for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    The quota can be set by the changeuser script. (/opt/open-xchange/sbin/changeuser)

      the storage is located at /var/opt/filestore and the context quota can be modified via the changecontext commandline tool.

        so the only thing in my var/opt directory is an open-xchange directory and inside of it is a filespool directory and a backup directory. Is that it? Can I just move it to my RAID array and make a sym link?

        /opt/open-xchange/sbin# ls
        addmaildomain      creategroup        generatempasswd  listuser
        allpluginsloaded   createreleasedata  getreleasename   modifymailconfig
        changegroup        createresource     jobcontrol       open-xchange-admindaemon
        changeresource     createuser         listcontext      open-xchange-groupware
        changeuser         deletecontext      listgroup        oxinstaller
        checkconsistency   deletegroup        listmailconfig   oxnetworkhelper
        createcertificate  deleteresource     listmaildomain   removemaildomain
        createcontext      deleteuser         listresource
        No changecontext in there. Is that weird?

        I've done searches and cant find a filestore anywhere or a changecontext. humm.

          So. No luck on getting a changecontext script. I can changeuser and createcontext, but creating context doesn't seem to be what I want. Is there some better documentation on what I'm doing floating around? My file storage is maxed out after just a few emails and I need to figure out how to change that.

          Is there a reason why the changecontext script wouldn't be in my install?

          Thanks guys.

          edit** changeuser worked for fixing my mail quotas. Thanks on that. Still wondering on where InfoStore files are located so I can move them to my RAID and also why I dont have a changecontext script. I'm running CE, I get the feeling that might be the problem. Thanks for you help guys.

            Me neither. And I'm also running the CE version. So I think you are right on this.

            But the files are stored in /var/opt/open-xchange/filespool. But only the files uploaded in InfoStore are stored (and renamed) over there, not the InfoStore item itself. I presume they are stored in the database. If you want the items stored on RAID device too, I think you have to move the MySQL database as well.

            And you can remove the mail quota completely by setting the quota to 0 with the changeuser script or in the admin-gui.

            Maybe you have to take a look at /opt/open-xchange/etc/groupware/ and /opt/open-xchange/etc/groupware/ It says something about quota.
