After logging in to DA, I tried to add a new domain and received an error:
Code:
Ftp: Unable to read the system ftp passwd file to add the user to it.

Errors encountered while creating domain.  Not adding domain to /etc/bind/named.conf
Error Creating Domain
When I want to try again I get an error
Code:
That domain already exists
Another bug I noticed that I can't edit "Modify user" (http://x.x.x.x:2222/reseller/users/admin/modify), in browser console I see error:
Code:
{
    "error": "Unable to read packages file",
    "extended": "true",
    "result": "Unable to open ./data/users/admin/packages.list for reading.\nNo such file or directory\n\n"
}
I changed the IP address for my license today because I wanted to install DirectAdmin on another machine - unfortunately I have bigger problems than on the previous one (there I have just problem with ISP - UDP connections on IPv6).

First problem disappear when I installed pureftp and uninstall it. Ok, but this should work fine after fresh installation.

Was this installation time or you've done some actions after?
It was installation summary, before installation I only updated Debian and configured IPv6, hostname, installed apt-transport-https curl git htop nmap traceroute and dependents for csf. I see that only exim error appears:
Code:
Converting to dovecot (2.3.9.2) ...
To Dovecot: Patching /etc/exim.conf to maildir
patching file /etc/exim.conf
Hunk #1 FAILED at 608.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 770.
Hunk #3 FAILED at 782.
3 out of 3 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file /etc/exim.conf.rej
I rebuilt it with custombuild and seems work okay.

The point is that I don't want to have FTP but installation fails when I don't install it on fresh system. So I installed it anyway and removed after installation.

confirmed: (note directadmin does seem to be installed and working)

Actually, the newer exim.conf files don't need to be patched. The bug would be the attempt to patch when it's not required, hence the error (basically just causing confusion). The "todovecot" isn't something that would be needed more than once and checking the code only happens if the directadmin.conf is not yet present or dovecot=1 is not present in the directadmin.conf. Regardless, you should be able to ignore the error.

Thanks for that report. I believe the locking is throwing error just due to the fact that the files don't exist yet.
Assuming its just the read lock causing the errors, and the write is fine, I've changed the installer for the next DA version to not lock anything during "admin" creation, since there won't be 2 installs happening at the same time. This will be for the next DA version, or pre-release (eg: "./setup.sh auto beta")

Agreed the error seems to be just that everything is working and i have yet to see any corruption.
