I have directadmin installed on a VDS (user mode linux) and would like to login to directadmin over and ssl connection and have a ssl connection for the whole session.

How can I do that?

Thanks,
Sam

Hello,

To enable SSL, instructions can be found about half way down through the installguide under the heading "Setup SSL Certificates".

http://www.directadmin.com/installguide.html

You must create the certificates and also edit /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf and set SSL=1.

Then you need to restart directadmin with:
Code:
service directadmin restart
All connections will then require https:// instead of http://
