I think I’m a little over my quota!

Have you ever noticed this in your blog? It’s never been there before, but it appeared in the last day or two. At the time I wasn’t sure how or why. It’s my blog hosted on one of my web hosting accounts, and I have no shortage of space. So why was I getting this warning?

My first question is, what dickhead gave me such a quota!

My first action was to work out where it was imposed.

Then I found who the right royal dick was. It was yours truly!

I’ve been doing too much playing in the back end and I at some point, and for some unknown reason, have turned it on.

I’m running WordPress Multisite and it’s a setting hidden in the Network Settings.

To navigate to it, click on My Sites in the top left corner, and select Network Admin. Then from the next menu select Settings.

this little setting on the right… Make sure you turn it off! :)

And that’s it! Once, you clear that little baby, you’ll be able to upload to your little hearts content.

UPDATE: It looks like I wasn’t the only one who’s ever done this!
