Direct Admin With Server

Sep 28, 2008

Just been thinking and currently i host all my services with other hosting companies like my web hosting accounts etc...but was thinking of buying a DA licence and installing it onto one of my linux servers.

On DA's website it says one licence per IP or something along them lines...does this mean if i was to install a licence on say and it was working ok etc but then if i changed my IP range to would that mean the DA licence would no longer be valid?

Dns (using Direct Admin)

Oct 11, 2009

Well what i can i say that direct admin is really pain in the ass, twice i asked in their forum but it was queued for moderation then not published. i'm having a problem setting up my domain 100% correctly.

let me explain more:

Before 1 or 2 weeks, i re-build the server and installed direct admin, but its really harder than other panels and i couldn't figure it 100% how to do,
my website now is running but i have the following problems

1- domain name can not be solved by all people. when i try to ping it it says its not resolvable, while the domain opens for most of users except for very few which gives an error saying can not connect to server

2- i get this error when using
while everything else is ok

3- some of users in some countries access home/admin/domains/sharedip/... while others access home/admin/domains/ which is the correct one, this causes problems but i temporary solved the problem by uploading files into both folders

Direct Admin And 64 Bit OS

Feb 20, 2008

I am trying to install Direct Admin on Cent OS 4.5 ( 64 bit ), but i am constantly getting library files error, one after another,

Example -

./directadmin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


./directadmin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


./directadmin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

goes on .........

But if i install 32 Bit library files (RPM), for them, they vanish and next error comes, with new file missing

I have tried loading 10 RPM's of 32 bit, but i cant go now forever...

Is there anyway to install Direct Admin on 64 Bit Cent OS?

Is there any 1 RPM file, which i can install and then Direct Admin wont give library problems.. ?

Direct Admin & 123-Reg

Sep 30, 2008

As in recent threads i have posted about getting a DA lifetime licence within the next month. I currently get my domains from 123-reg but i am just wondering if someone could help me or if they have an answer to my question!

If i bought a domain from 123-reg and then got a lifetime licence from DA and had it installed onto my server what happens to the nameservers? Like when DA install it onto my box would they sort out the nameservers for my domain aswell like, or would i have to pay extra for them?

Add Domain Via Direct Admin

Nov 7, 2009

When I introduce myself as a newbie, I do not exaggerate. Hope to slowly change that, thought.

I have recently rented a dedicated server from worldstream and have paid for a lifetime usage of Directadmin. My goal is just to host my own site.

Now I am trying to transfer the my domain to this server. From what I can tell, I need to change the DNS for the domain from it's current DNS.

In the Directadmin control panel under "DNS Administration", I see "Add Zone" which I assume is the step to take. Under "Add zone", it asks for

(1) Domain name (what format would I enter this)

(2) IP Address (I was supplied with three IP's when I signed up with worldstream. Do I just pick one of these?)

(3) Name Server 1 (Unsure of what to enter here)

(4) Name Server 2 (Ditto as above)

I realize this is quite basic for most.

CPanel To Direct Admin

May 12, 2007

I don't start a CPanel vs DA war, but need to get a "what might be different" list re a VPS.

When I got my present VPS (moved from shared hosting) I had it initially set up with DA. All my previous experience had been with CP on my shared hosting account, but I had read about CP being a bit of a resource hog.

When I tried to set up my VPS, I got it wrong. I ended up with 2 instances of "" on the server. I got so confused talking with support and their UNIX lingo, that I had them switch to CPanel.

I'm probably going to move to another host and thinking of using DA to save RAM.

I'm not a reseller of hosting, just have 20+ small to very small sites. I have a number of mySQL databases that get a fair number of queries. I have 1 vBulletin app but the traffic on that site is VERY low.

So what will I need to learn differently in DA?

-cron jobs
-parked domains
-migrating sites
-backing up sites

Direct Admin License Costs

Aug 9, 2007

I've just had a quote for a VPS that seemed good value for money until the cost of a Direct Admin license was added ($15 extra).

Looking at DA's pricing the cheapest license you can buy is an internal license (in bulk) which is available to server providers only at 9$ a month.

If that is the case why is it that quite a few providers in the offers forum are providing DA for 5$ or 6$?

As these licenses are being offered on low end VPS with tight margins anyway, I can't understand how they can afford to make a loss on the control panel (if they are in fact).

Direct Admin : Root Ownership

May 15, 2007

I'm Running (just) Direct Admin On a Centos 4.3

Due to a typo at the comand line as Root, ive manages to change the owner ship of unknown mounts of files.

The command that was processed (Before it was complete)

chown -R reseller:reseller /

I managed to stop the process ctr+c
and these were the last files to see fly past.
The last one in the list is where it stopped at.

chown: changing ownership of `/proc/11566/task/11566': Operation not permitted
chown: changing ownership of `/proc/11566/task/11566/fd/0': No such device or address

chown: changing ownership of `/dev/core': Operation not permitted
chown: changing ownership of `/usr/local/include/libpng/libpng12':

Too many levels of symbolic links

At the moment the server is still running and it seems only to be log in issues with Direct admin. All user / reseller / Admin accounts can no longer log in.

Error after logging in : Unable to determine Usertype user.conf needs to be repaired
No images or nothing

Direct Admin: Php Mail() Only Sends Email To Certain Domains

Jun 5, 2009

I am currently setting up my server, and are experiencing some problems.

Some of the mails sendt with the php mail() func, ends up in the mail queue in DA, and I get the following error log in DA:

2009-06-04 20:36:02 Received from <> R=1MCHnG-0005uQ-9v U=mail P=local S=1344 T="Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender"
2009-06-04 20:36:02 routing failed for admin@vmnd001.local <> F=<>: Unrouteable address
2009-06-04 20:36:02 routing failed for admin@vmnd001.local <> F=<>: Unrouteable address
*** Frozen (delivery error message)

This only happens with some email domains though. If I set the recipient to my yahoo mail, it works as a sharm, but when I set my other email (<<removed>>) as recipient, i get the error log above.

Exchange Server - POP 3 Connector To Direct Receipt Email Config

Nov 28, 2006

I have a 2003 SBS server with about 50 users on exchange. It is a standalone DC - all the users connect with 'profiles' and 'docs' on the server and use exchange thru outlook..when they leave the office they VPN in and exchange works like a charm.

Problem is for a quick setup I've used the POP 3 connector and kept the emails hosted on my server - I want to get rid of the POP3 connector setup altogether and have mail delivered directly to the server.

Can someone give me a walk thru of steps to do this - so far I have fgured out that I have to add the domain to the recipient policy - configure it properly and then setup each user to receive email for that username and it will just work....

I want to be sure and was hoping that someone who has done the same thing could point me to an accurate tutorial of sorts.

Server Breach - One Time Admin

Mar 4, 2008

we have a server that was breeched and is being used to send ddos attacks to another website and we need to stop it permanently and secure our server to avoid it from happening again.

My tech has already been able to track down the bot/script that was sending it and seemed to stop it for about a week, but they have gained access to the server again.

He is not an expert at security issues so I'm looking to hire someone for a one time job to correct this issue.

Can someone offer me some referrals of someone to take care of this. Please do not recommend Rack911 as I waited nearly a week for their assistance and had no luck.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Admin Panel - 500 Internal Server Error

Oct 29, 2014

I have experiencing strange behaviour of Plesk admin panel. Actually there were a lot of issues similar with 500 Internal Server error but mine is a bit different..

This is the log came from the '/var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log'

/bin/sh: /usr/share/sw-cp-server/ Permission denied
Cannot find config item ["global/SERVERsocket==:8443", ".php", 0]
2014-10-29 19:38:22: (mod_fastcgi.c.1068)

[Code] ....

As you can see there is a line starts with /bin/sh: /usr/share/sw-cp-server/ Permission denied and i tried to change this one for permission like 0755 or alternatives for a run but nothings changed. Btw i have plenty of disk space, it wasn't also the case.

I cannot even login with my domain name without 'https' and with the port 8880. It's again giving me the same issue.

BTW i want to give a little extra information; it was a long time that Plesk admin panel working but after today it's stuck in 500 Internal server error. What i tried today that to follow 'How to generate custom self-signed SSL certificates and apply it to Postfix: [URL] ....' , but after 6th step i was decied to stop because i couldnt find the root.pem file a minute and than i wanted to try on plesk and i saw the bad news I don't know it was related but i wanted to share.
