    Hi,

    There is nothing special about installing Directadmin on a fresh Centos 7. There are a lot of tutorials on the internet, for example this one:
    https://www.servermania.com/kb/artic...n-on-centos-7/

    After installation the "magic" happens, with custombuild 2 you can easily set your favorite configuration and maybe you tune Apache and/or NGINX a bit.

    Yep i agree, after a few times getting this installed, finetuned etc it works fine for me.

    >There are a >>>>>>lot of tutorials on the internet<<<<

    LOL i have seen this also, used it and get started with it, after i figured the LAN option out :-)

    too much links, not a easy simple hot to setup page i have n't seen yet.

    >>After installation the "magic" happens, with custombuild 2
    Great plugin... if it works directly after install, will figure it out asap, with a fresh installment later.

    thx,

    There are also help pages of directadmin itself like these:
    https://www.directadmin.com/installguide.php
    with links to requirements and pre-install commands.

    Also this one for some basic security tips:
    https://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=247

    And of course if you choose for Custombuild 2 when installing, the best things and easiest to install and update things will happen.
    It might be wise to set some Exim options by default, or after installation (and then rebuild Exim) to have better mails security.
    At least these:
    Code:
    #Mail Settings
    exim=yes
    eximconf=yes
    eximconf_release=4.5
    blockcracking=yes
    easy_spam_fighter=yes
    And you might want to choose spamassassin too.
    Greetings, Richard.
