    Important Date

    February 22nd is an important date in the U.S. because it's the birthday of our first Presidet, George Washington. It's also my father's birthday, and though he's been gone for almost 20 years, we're still celebrating his Centennial; he was born on February 22, 1915. I'm going to be...

    New Backup Error noted

    On multiple servers backing up up to our in-house backup server(but not all of them)... Control Panel screen 'Admin Backup/Transfer', section 'Active Backups' says backup is still active. Started September 24th. This of course is an anomaly because we've had successful daily backups every...

    Red Hat Bash Code Injection Vulnerabilty (CVE-2014-6271)

    I'm hoping no one will get too angry at me; I felt that Official DirectAdmin Announcements would be the best place to post this. I got it today in an email from Red Hat. It appears a fix may already be available in CentOS yum repository (and of course in the yum repository as well.) Test for...

    Wiki Watching...

    Time to set up a DirectAdmin Wiki? Maybe. Post in another thread picked up some interest so time to open a new thread here. I've got a few domains which would be perfect. I've got the room for a machine, even a machine which would get lots of hits. I'm willing to supply the following hardware...

    Parking Domains

    This thread is a continuation of a topic discussion here. Point is how to park domains relatively obscurely (complete obscurity fairly impossible given new rules on email addresses, mail addresses, etc., must be real or registrars will cancel domain registrations). I have some pieces in place...

    Email routing problem when restoring reseller w/o all domains

    I've found what some might consider a bug. I had a reseller with one site which wouldn't run after a PHP version change, so we moved him to a machine still running the old version: We first backed up and restored the reseller (no users) to the server running the older version of php. Then we...

    [SOLVED] some wordpress sites slow

    I'm posting this as a user issue because I have no reason to believe it's a server issue, but I just don't know. One of my resellers is reporting some, but not all, of his wordpress sites, are running extremely slow, taking minutes (in some cases) to come up or move between pages). Other sies...

    ExecCGI not working

    I've Googled, but can't find an answer that resolves the issue on my latest server. One client has a site that worked fine on a crashed older server but on this one fails because of ExecCGI. I've tried to fix it but haven't found anything that works. We tried: <Directory |DOCROOT|>...
