Adjusting specific settings on a per-virtual server basis

Hello, folks.
I'm maybe overlooking something, but I keep imagining a sanario that looks like the following:
User A has virtual server somedomain.blah.
User A begins abusing his resources, etc.
So I limit user A's total disk quota using the quota's and limits section with the edit virtual server section.
So that solves a few things (and I'm not wishing to do this globally with account plans) directly, so this is why I pose these questions.
Now, suppose I'm in a sitaution where I can do this successfully.
But User B requests an additional mailbox (and at account creation, he only has 1 mailbox,) and now needs 2 to be available, etc.
I'm wondering about this, as well as all the follwoing:
Can change database name? and all of that stuff.
yes, it's in account plans, obviously, but that's not where I wish to do any of these tasks.
I wish to do it on a per-account basis, not globally, as I would wish to leave every other account alone.
Does Virtualmin have any specific setup where this may be accomplished?
If not, any specific areas where the settings I refferenced like database name change allowance, alias and non-aliass servers, etc may be done only on a server basis and not throughout the entire system at the account plan level?
I'm looking for the power to do all of this on a per-server or in this case think of the servers as actual customers, without actually effecting anybody at account plan level.
So this is why I ask for any assistance you folks may have in this specific situation, and I hope someone has some useful experience to offer here.
Thanks!

I'm also wondering, if somebody could explain just so I understand exactly why I might want to limit this why a quota for server administrator exists, and why I may wish to limit it? I'd appreciate a sanario in wich it might be good to limit it, and maybe a possible consequence of me not doing so, just in case I ever find myself in that type of server situation! Thanks!
Also, I think I've answered my own questionn above, after pokigna bout, I found something relating to owner settings under the server configuration section.

Howdy,

You can change the settings that you see in the Account Plans for one specific Virtual Server in Administrative Options -> Edit Owner Limits.

Be sure to check out both "Virtualmin limits for server owner" and "Allowed capabilities and features".

As far as changing the database name -- I believe that's an on or off toggle for the entire server (though I don't seem to be able to find it at a glance here, so I'm not entirely certain :-)

if somebody could explain just so I understand exactly why I might want to limit this why a quota for server administrator exists, and why I may wish to limit it?

Well, while it's there to provide additional options -- I've never once used that option, and I'm not sure I've yet run across a setup which does :-) (to be fair, I haven't seen the setups of most folks on here, but still!)

I personally think that option makes things more confusing than they need to be, and I'm not sure it's all that useful :-) Now that you mention it, I may talk to Jamie about whether it's really necessary. (if anyone is using it, now is a good time to mention it :-)
