Hello,

In this thread I will share my experience installing DA using custombuild.
(Post updated for custombuild version 1.1.6)

Settings:


...

DirectAdmin will now be installed on: Enterprise 5
Is this correct? (must match license) (y,n) :

You now have 2 options for your apache/php setup.

1: customapache: older, more tested. Includes Apache 1.3, php 4 and frontpage.
2: custombuild: newer, less tested. Includes any Apache version, php 4, 5, or both in cli and/or suphp. Frontpage not available with Apache 2.x.
Post any issues with custombuild to the forum: http://www.directadmin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=61

Enter your choice (1 or 2): 2
You have chosen custombuild.

Would you like the default settings of apache 2.2 and php 5 cli? (y/n): n
You have chosen to customize the custombuild options. Please wait while options configurator is downloaded...

It took me quite a while to figure out that selecting PHP4 as "CLI" actually refers to building it as Apache module in addition to compiling CLI binary. This is extremely confusing and I would suggest adding clarifications asap.

Problem 1: Apache won't start after DA install.

Description:
In order to reproduce the problem, execute


# service httpd status
httpd is stopped
# service httpd start
Starting httpd: [FAILED]
# tail /var/log/httpd/error_log
[Thu Nov 22 17:13:21 2007] [error] OpenSSL: error:0D06B08E:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_D2I_READ_BIO:not enough data
[Thu Nov 22 17:13:31 2007] [error] mod_ssl: Init: Unable to read server certificate from file /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt (OpenSSL library error follows)
[Thu Nov 22 17:13:31 2007] [error] OpenSSL: error:0D06B08E:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_D2I_READ_BIO:not enough data


Explanation:
Default install doesnt include SSL certificate. I think it would be better to have self-signed certificate installed by default rather than no certificate at all.

Resolution:
Install server certificate as follows:


cat > /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----

...

-----END PRIVATE KEY-----
^D
chmod 400 /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key

cat > /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

....

-----END CERTIFICATE-----
^D
chmod 400 /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt

Problem 2: Dovecot doesn't get installed

Description:
In order to reproduce the problem, execute



[root@main /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild]# netstat -l -p | grep pop3
[root@main /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild]# netstat -l -p | grep imap
tcp 0 0 *:imap *:* LISTEN 3125/xinetd
[root@main /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild]# ps aux | grep dove
root 29398 0.0 0.0 60228 708 pts/1 R+ 17:49 0:00 grep dove


Resolution:
Rebuild dovecot after DA install completes:


cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build dovecot

Problem 3: PHP build fails

Description:
The build ends with an error and no PHP binaries are created:


/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libltdl.a(ltdl.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/libltdl.a(ltdl.o): could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [libphp4.la] Error 1


Explanation:
I think this problem is related to the following warning generated while trying to build mcrypt library with ./build mcrypt:


creating ./config.status
creating Makefile
creating config.h
/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I. -g -O2 -c ltdl.c

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I. -g -O2 -c ltdl.c -o ltdl.o >/dev/null 2>&1
/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=link gcc -g -O2 -o libltdl.la -rpath /usr/local/lib -no-undefined -version-info 4:0:1 ltdl.lo -ldl

Resolution (credit goes to smtalk):

Install stock ltdl library and use it instead of the version bundled with libmcrypt:


yum install libtool-ltdl
yum install libtool-ltdl-devel
ln -sf /usr/lib64/libltdl.a /usr/local/lib/libltdl.a
./build php n

Problem 4 (reported by .::Gsmdenis::.): FTP won't start after DA install.

Description:
In order to confirm the problem, execute:


# ftp localhost
ftp: connect: Connection refused
ftp> bye
# /etc/init.d/proftpd status
proftpd dead but subsys locked
# /etc/init.d/proftpd start
Starting proftpd: - Fatal: unknown configuration directive 'DisplayChdir' on line 62 of '/etc/proftpd.conf'
[FAILED]

Resolution:
Rebuild FTP


cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build proftpd

About #4 - it was a problem of proftpd.conf file, and I don't think it came with the CustomBuild script. #2 - did you get any errors? #1 - only with Apache 1.3.39, you should inform DirectAdmin support about it.

About #4 - it was a problem of proftpd.conf file, and I don't think it came with the CustomBuild script.
May be proftpd.conf file doesn't get copied over during custombuild install.
I can make OS reload and give you an access if you want to reproduce this problem on your end and need a test environment.

#2 - did you get any errors?
I didn't look for errors in the build, however, I noticed that after rebuilding dovecot as suggested above, /etc/xinetd.d/imap file was gone and another program was bound to imap port:


# netstat -l -p | grep imap
tcp 0 0 *:imaps *:* LISTEN 3575/imap-login
tcp 0 0 *:imap *:* LISTEN 3575/imap-login


#1 - only with Apache 1.3.39, you should inform DirectAdmin support about it.
I thought custombuild is considered beta and we should report all issues in the custombuild forum ;)

Only CustomBuild 1.2 is beta, and 1.1 isn't beta anymore. About the errors - it would be great if you could reproduce them.

Problem 5: Zend Optimizer is installed for default (PHP4) only

Description:
After building PHP as suggested here (http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showpost.php?p=117977&postcount=4), execute the following commands to install Zend Optimizer:


cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build zend

This, however, will install Zend Optimizer for (default) PHP4 only.
In order to install the same for PHP5, find Zend section in PHP4's ini file:


# tail /usr/local/Zend/etc/php.ini
; tab-width: 4
; End:


[Zend]
zend_extension_manager.optimizer=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer-3.2.8
zend_extension_manager.optimizer_ts=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer_TS-3.2.8
zend_optimizer.version=3.2.8
zend_extension=/usr/local/Zend/lib/ZendExtensionManager.so
zend_extension_ts=/usr/local/Zend/lib/ZendExtensionManager_TS.so

and add it to /usr/local/etc/php5/cgi/php.ini file:


# cat >> /usr/local/etc/php5/cgi/php.ini
[Zend]
zend_extension_manager.optimizer=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer-3.2.8
zend_extension_manager.optimizer_ts=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer_TS-3.2.8
zend_optimizer.version=3.2.8
zend_extension=/usr/local/Zend/lib/ZendExtensionManager.so
zend_extension_ts=/usr/local/Zend/lib/ZendExtensionManager_TS.so
^D

^D denotes Ctrl-D.
That's it. You don't even have to restart Apache since PHP5 is compiled as CGI.

Comment 1: SpamAssassin: installation and configuration

In order to install SpamAssassin (SA), follow instructions found at How to enable SpamAssassin on your server (http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=36).

So far, I was unable to find information about SA configuration, in particular, how to
- report false positives
- report false negatives
- whitelist trusted networks and/or IP addresses

I will update this post once I figure this out :)

Problem 6: FTP client fails to run

I think this is a new issue introduced with the recent upgrade of the build script to v1.1.6.
FTP client terminates unexpectedly after connecting to FTP server.
