What is an FTPQUOTA file?
Configuration file used by ftpquota, a ProFTPD (Professional FTP Daemon) add-on that moderates the number of active FTP file transfers for a user account on a remote server; saved in a plain text format and stores the number of allowed file transfers; used by the server add-on (or module) called mod_quotatab, which is not installed by default with ProFTPD.
FTPQUOTA files are often created by cPanel open source Web hosting software, which includes ProFTPD and the mod_quotatab add-on. When creating a user account, cPanel generates a ~/public_ftp/ directory that contains the file .ftpquota. This configuration file is used by the FTP software to moderate uploads and downloads.
