Uploading a file fails once group file quota reaches 80%

Hi all,

We are using Mahara 18.04.2 with Postgres 9.4.

We set "group file quota" to be 100MB. However uploading a file will always fail (unless it is a real small size like 2KB) once group file quota reaches 80%. The cogwheel of the uploading just keeps spinning and no errors or warnings return.

If the quota-notify-limiit is hard-coded to be 80 for group, I was expecting to see a warning message either sent to group admin and also pop up over the browser, at the meantime the upload will still proceed as long as there is still enough space left.

Does anyone run into this issue and know why? Is it a design-intent or bug?

Hi Bei,

Steven, our tester confirmed the issue in 18.04 but didn't experience it in 18.10. I created a bug at

Hi Kristina,

Thank you so much for the response. I agree with you. Since it is not an issue that would stop Mahara from working and group quota can be increased to circumvent it, and also knowing it is a bug in 18.04 but fixed in 18.10, we can wait for the fix to come out in a patch a little bit later.
