Get cPanel User’s Disk Usage

Here is how to get a user’s disk space usage on a cPanel user:


You can see the usage on the left-hand side of cPanel, or in the ‘List Accounts’ view of WHM:

account 1024x637 - Get cPanel User’s Disk Usage


du -h /home/$user

Quota cache:

egrep "^${user} " /var/cpanel/repquota.cache

Actual quota:

quota -v | egrep "^${user} "

cPanel datastore:

cat /home/$user/.cpanel/datastore/_usr_bin_quota_-v
