Hehe, was tempted to upgrade... but not on a production box :) Not yet.

this will be going on my DA test box within the next week or 2 that currently runs 6.0.

Upgraded to 6.1 last weekend. Runs smoothly. No problems whatsoever.

Are there any signs of official (beta) DA support for 6.1-Release?
My 6.0 showed that it's kinda unstable :(

It does not matter at all. Beta or not, runs smootlhy. There's not a noticeable difference between 6.0 and 6.1 binaries.

Here is my experience from installing directadmin on FreeBSD 6.1.


Installed cvsup via ports
Updated os source and ports via cvsup
Recompiled world/kernel

Had the usual wget licence error so I followed the 5.x instructions in the link below which also didn't work (I didn't expect it to but why not try it). Then I copied back the origional wget file (installed by directadmin) and it worked fine so maybe give this a go if you have the same issue. Don't ask me how it worked as I can't still work it out:


After that it went smooth until I tried to start apache and it errored out with something along the lines of "no group named admin" so I created a group called admin:

pw groupadd admin

After that apache started fine and so far so good after 4 days. Note that I haven't thoroughly tested everything so there are probably still bugs so I would still class this as a beta.

6.1 with DA works in the same way as 6.0, if you had problems expect the same ones in 6.1 if you didnt have problems dont expect any in 6.1

Steve had the same problems as me with wget and group admin, I forgot all about the admin problem when previously posting here and cant remember if it also happened in the 5.x version but I believe it does.
