Sorry I was confusing. I meant an application that works alongside DA, perhaps using its api. It should plugin to DA with these functions, like you said with a billing link.jmstacey said:I took a quick look and it appears to be a lot of some of the previous suggestions for directadmin, in regards to more advanced user levels (admin>reseller>user>reseller etc).
Just out of curiosity, you wrote "use directadmin as backbone." so I guess you know that no modifications can be made to DirectAdmin since it is written in C (or C++), that is unless DA is willing to trust someone with the source, which I doubt
So, are you thinking of a completely independent application, a type of mini control panel to serve along side DA with the functions listed. Or a plugin accessed from within DirectAdmin for these functions along with a modified skin for things such as the billing link?
Sean, would you consider posting your entire request so folk might go through it and ask questions?sean said:Looking for some directadmin modifications.

If someone wants to quote me a price on setting something like this up and walking one of my guys through the admin... please do so.fusionictnl said:Why not just buy a billing system ?
As most of the features you describe are the same as a billing system. (Modernbill maybe ? )
Perhaps because H-Sphere uses a mail server that hasn't been updated by the author since 1998?rldev said:Out of curiosity,
Why not use Hsphere? It can do almost all of these things out of the box. I would love to see DA do all of these things though
I agree. Having a billing solution built in to DirectAdmin would mean the staff would be working on solutions easily obtainable elsewhere instead of on other features which we'd all like to see and aren't available elsewhere.jmstacey said:I would not want to see billing management built into DA such as hsphere. It would only add to the load of icing features which can alredy be handled by whoiscart(silverstar) and mbill etc.
I was going to keep my mouth firmly shut on this issue - but anywayrldev said:Look this is not a Hsphere vs DA thread. The point was simply that almost everything this user wants to pay a lot of money to have done can already be done with Hsphere as it is now. I'm just trying to help the guy in case he was not aware.
You can say whatever you want about Qmail, but currently as it stands Hsphere's "entire" mail system as a whole is better then DA's. No uwimap or Mbox to drag a server down. SA/CLAM on a per email account level. MTA's are only part of the mail setup, how you deploy it and with what other tools is another matter.
Correct me if I'm wrong and I don't believe I am, but doesn't Yahoo use Qmail. How many millions of emails do they serve per day? Besides the people at Hsphere, Plesk and Yahoo have the horses to modify whatever they need. Should one choose Cpanel because it has Exim?
