I just went to enable letsencrypt and DA is failing to start:

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# service directadmin start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start directadmin.service
Job for directadmin.service failed because a configured resource limit was exceeded. See "systemctl status directadmin.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Changing SSL to 0 and letsencrypt to being disabled fixes the problem.

Any ideas?

Maybe an existing directadmin.pid was already running. Try to reenable SSL to 1 and letsencrypt to being enabled and then use service service directadmin restart.
