if i have an old exim that is installed through apt on an old debian server,
can i just upgrade like this with DA to the Exim DA version or do i need to make a backup of the conf, then uninstall the debian package and then configure DA to install exim?

And do i need to upgrade to cunstombuild 2.0 first for this? (server is stil using custombuild 1.58.2 because it refuses to update to newer version 1.xx versions.)

I believe it's overwriting your config because of the use of extra modules (SA, BlockC, CalmAV enz).
I suggest to keep systems allways up to date due security isseus

Previously there were 1.1 and 1.2 versions of custombuild, see https://forum.directadmin.com/threads/custombuild-1-1-and-1-2-faq.29824/ There never were 1.58.x, so I guess this is a version of DirectAdmin you have there installed.

And yes, I'm not sure how you exim installed from apt running on directadmin server. Directadmin installs configs for Exim in a different place, so you might have various issues with it. So yes, you'd better create backups of your configs before upgrading.
