    Default Exim config causes valid mail to be rejected

    Ran into the same issue today as a while back, and did the dive into RFCs to trace it to an issue in DirectAdmin stock exim configs. The following config section in exim.conf attempts to protect from spammers: #EDIT#27: # 1st deny checks if it's a hostname or IPV4 address with dots or IPV6...

    Freshclam won't run correctly on Debian 8

    Referring to https://forum.directadmin.com/showthread.php?t=52195 It would appear the startup scripts for freshclam don't create the PID folder correctly, and when repaired manually it disappears during reboots. The verified workaround is: killall freshclam mkdir -p /var/run/clamd chown...

    DirectAdmin API client library for PHP

    Hi all, Today we have released the first semi-stable v0.1 release of our new DirectAdmin client library. As the previous attempts were mostly just thin wrappers around HTTP clients, barely updated and even less maintained, we decided to open source our efforts in creating the one-size-fits-all...

    Easier server migrations

    Change domain pointer/alias type, bulk add

    I've been in the situation several times where a customer with a lot of domain aliases released a new website where the site code itself handled domain aliases, and as such I had to change 10+ domain pointers to aliases. Currently this means deleting all 10 of them and then re-adding them one by...

    Backup jobs overloading system

    I have a rather big DirectAdmin server on which it has become impossible to make backups since it causes so much I/O load that Apache and MySQL start to hang. While this is most probably caused by the underlying SAN infrastructure (it's a VM) I cannot solve it there - Linux just keeps on...

    Users 'lost' to reseller after migration restore

    Earlier this week I migrated a heap of DA accounts from one server where I have administrator access to a reseller account on another server, in batches of 4~5 each to be able to keep a check on things. Afterwards I noticed something strange had happened during one of the batches: the 4 users...

    Is Debian AMD64 officially supported?

    While installing DirectAdmin on a Debian Etch AMD64 installation, everything is quite fine and Custombuild even notifies me about installing on a 64-bit system, but when it's done I have a system on which ProFTPd, Exim, MySQL and Apache are not running. The root of all evil appears to be MySQL...
