    I finished a Directadmin installation on a fresh Debian 10 server, thinking mysql data would be installed to /var/lib/mysql, with a symlink /home/mysql -> /var/lib/mysql as detailed here: and as is the case on several Debian 9 servers we're...

    This is not really Directadmin related, so I'm also opening a ticket with Installatron, but maybe someone here has some experience with this as well. We backed up / restored a Directadmin account with a Wordpress site installed and managed through Installatron from one server to another (php...

    ignore custom httpd template for specific user

    suphp.conf overwritten when running ./build rewrite_confs

    We have some older servers running SuPHP and noticed /usr/local/suphp/etc/suphp.conf gets overwritten when running ./build rewrite_confs. Is it possible to use a custom suphp.conf file with Custombuild (as it is with the httpd configuration files) or are we better off just chattr-ing it? Thanks!

    On one of our DirectAdmin servers, when we surf to the server IP or the server hostname, instead of the contents of /var/www/html/index.html, we get the contents of the index.html in the public_html of the first user/domain bound to that IP. Any idea what could be the cause for this?

    DA backups when using ftp with TLS

    Hi, Quick question, since I don't have a way of testing this at the moment. If I enabled TLSRequired in proftpd.conf, would automated DirectAdmin backups over ftp still work? Thanks.
