I am somewhat new to DirectAdmin and have read everything I can find on restarting DirectAdmin after installing an SSL.

I have tried "service directadmin restart" and /etc/init.d/directadmin restart to no avail (at least it doesn't seem so as I cannot call directadmin on 2222 with https://)

I used "cd /usr/local/directadm
./directadmin" to see if I could find the problem. This is the result of that:
"Bind Error: Make sure there aren't any copied running in the background
Address already in use"

Now I am at a loss as to where to go next. Any thoughts to help me sort through this would be appreciated.

"Address already in use""
netstat -lnp
there you will see what process/PIDs using ports
than you can kill it and restart service
