[owncloud-devel] Create file upload restrictions for users through owncloud server

I do not believe you can limit file size on any file system. 

What you can definitely do in php.ini is to set this parameter:. 

upload_max_filesize = XX 

auto explanatory...

Dear Pablo, 
Thanks for the response. However, I don't want directory level quotas, I can allow unlimited for the user, I only want file size restriction. To explain it more, lets say you have folder called images, I want to set that all images < 100 MB, and similarly for a folder called video, all files are < 500 MB. I don't care how many files, I only care what is the file size. 
Now I am still reading, but does GlusterFS / XFS has that capability ? 


Thanks 
Alam

Try directory quotas on the backend storage file system. 

With XFS 
https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37670_01/E37355/html/ol_prjquo_xfs.html 

GlusterFS has a very easy way to implement simple size quota on any directory:

ownCloud version: 8.2.2

Database: MySQL 
OS: Linux 
PHP version: 5.6.x 


Hello Everyone, 
I tried posting this on the owncloud support forums, but @RealRancor advised me to use this list. You can see my question on the forums https://forum.owncloud.org/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=32993 . 

I am still learning about owncloud and its amazing apps capability, so please elaborate your answers if you can. I have a simple requirement. Lets say I start a owncloud webserver on a machine. I ask users to upload their pictures and videos on lets say swim club trips. I want to be able to build an app with a functionality that restricts the users with two folders images and videos to file size limits 100 MB and 500 MB respectively. Or there a better way without using app framework ? I know there is a way to set the global owncloud upload limit, I also know that there is a place where user skeleton or default files can be created. 

I am not looking for a spoon-fed answer, just general directions where I can go and look, so I am able to achieve the said functionality of different upload restrictions for different directories at the user/ client level. 

Let me know your thoughts about this. 

I am reading this documentation, and understanding it, but can you sketch roughly how would you / or any one with knowledge of owncloud and apps would go about building such an application. Just some starting pointers please, since I don't have much prior experience with web development. 


Thanks 
Alam
