vzquota : (error) Quota is running, stop it first

If you receive the error message “vzquota : (error) Quota is running, stop it first” while restarting a VPS, you will first have to turn off it’s quota and then drop it

vzquota off  VEID
vzquota drop VEID

Once done, restart the VPS and it will re-initialize the quota for the VPS and will start the VPS. If the problem persist, remove the /var/vzquota/quota.veid file

rm -f /var/vzquota/quota.veid

and then start the VPS. This should also display the correct disk space used by the VPS.
