Ive followed the directions here http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=408 to update to a prerelease binary. However in my control panel it still lists my DA version as 1.41.1

Is there anyway to know if the binaries are installed and working or is that version supposed to change in the control panel as the indicator of the change?

Thanks!

Hello,

At the bottom of the article by that link (http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=408) it's said:

Note, if you're downloading these binaries for a recent fix, ensure you check the date that they were compiled to ensure that the fix is in them.
To do this, type:

Code:
cd /usr/local/directadmin
 ./directadmin o
and make sure that the compiled date is recent, relative to the fix. If the date is before the fix was implemented, then the fix is not likely in these binaries, in which csae you can just request we update them by emailing us, and include your OS version.

Hello,

At the bottom of the article by that link (http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=408) it's said:
Grabbing the pre-release of directadmin is like forcing an intermediate user to become an expertise in both software versioning and logging. I think it's better to put a label as 'pre-release' instead of using the command ./directadmin o to check the recent compile version. We never know which one is the pre-release vs stable release.


That is what I thought ^_^

It's a very good notice. I like it too.


For those who wants to update you can use a simple script:

Code:
cd /root/
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/poralix/directadmin-utils/master/core/updateda.sh
chmod 755 updateda.sh
and run to install beta

Code:
./updateda.sh beta
or to install stable

Code:
./updateda.sh stable
