1. That usually happens due to missing a final line-break in directadmin.conf

Control it with:

Code:
/usr/local/directadmin/directadmin c | grep ^[COLOR=#333333]login_history=[/COLOR]


if you see

Code:
# /usr/local/directadmin/directadmin c | grep ^login_history=login_history=10
you need to add line-break after
Code:
[COLOR=#333333]login_history=1000[/COLOR]
and restart directadmin.


2. It won't show logins from earlier times... it will collect new data and show new logins after they occur.

OK, found out the max allowed value is 100. It's hardcoded. If you need more you need to contact directadmin developers via tickets and ask them for it. That's fully up to them implement it or not.
