    PHP versions

    Is there a way to choose the PHP version for NEW accounts and NEW domains? php1 = 5.6 < need to remove actually php2 = 7.2 php3 = 7.3 I'd like php2 for new accounts/domains..... Possible? Via pre/post script? Or? Also, how do I get rid of PHP 5.6 then have php1 as 7.2 if I already have 7.2...

    Sort files in tmp directory

    I noticed there are 'sort<random 6 alphanumeric>' files appeared/appearing in /tmp/, over 600GB of the damn things! Never ever seen this behaviour before, however, upon 'cat'ing' one of these, it appears that it's to do with a Wordpress plugin, UpDraftPlus... Anyone have any experience with...

    MySQL Crashes frequently

    I'm not sure what is going on here... This is an OpenVZ 6 CT that has been running flawlessly for years, however, two days ago MySQL started to crash/restart at random intervals. A client mucked up their wordpress database, so I reimported a .sql backup via phpmyadmin.... This is when this...

    SFTP when authorized_keys enabled (in Putty) using Filezilla

    How do you use Filezilla with SFTP but without it looking at Putty's configuration for authorized_keys by default? Am I being stupid?

    Compile errors with OpenSSL?

    Debian 9. There's too much to paste, so I'm going just to paste a few lines. This is repeated errors for more .c files than this. ext/openssl/.libs/xp_ssl.o: In function `sk_X509_num':/usr/include/openssl/x509.h:97: undefined reference to `OPENSSL_sk_num' ext/openssl/.libs/xp_ssl.o: In...

    Backup notifications

    It would be good to have an option to choose what email alerts are sent/added to the messaging system for backups. eg. * All emails (successful too); * Just error emails (similar to the previous LetsEncrypt failure alerts, I know now it generates certs in the background then alerts you if...

    Suggestion: API and

    The API is rubbish as it is, but it should have a separate optional WHITELIST and not look at the scripts. or make - if it's not already - the IP that is in the /usr/local/directadmin/data/admin/ip_whitelist bypass these scripts. When you need to change the IP(s)...

    www.|SUBDOMAIN| in templates

    Do we really need the www with sub-domains these days? Ok, some people like them, some don't - I'm the latter. What were the reasons behind them? Not sure if this can be done, but, can we at least have an option to turn these off without needing to edit the templates?
  10. Peter Laws New installs

    Although improved, I had some issues. 1. The setup asked what software is to be installed, except for MySQL/MariaDB. I understand MariaDB is the default for many OS (using Debian 9), and it is fairly easy to switch afterwards, but it's tedious; 2. wasn't in the scripts...

    opcache & opcache.fast_shutdown

    I had to disable this, as it interfered with Wordpress's Elementor for some reason...... How would I handle this, I mean, omitting opcache.fast_shutdown=1 in the 10-directadmin.ini files. They get rewritten whenever you build php, right?

    php-fpm and memory

    Ever since I moved from mod_php, memory usage has been shocking.. 8gb VM with 2gb swap, php 5.6 and 7.2...... After a while, memory and swap can occasionally run out (0)....... When I restart the fpm's, memory is free'd, before I restart them, usage can be up to 3gb. I know 8gb is not that...

    Apache & http2

    Just realised a weird issue. I compiled http2 to Apache.... But I'm seeing http1.1 requests for domains, h2 requests to the main hostname.
