Hi Everyone,

Looking for advice or your ideas on what you have installed on your DA servers.

Looking to setup a new VPS with DA installed and was contemplating on what software I should install.

What would you install on a DA server for hosting client control panels?

So far I have:
- CSF
- OpenLiteSpeed
- MariaDB
- SpamAssasin

TIA!

From options.conf and directadmin.conf
- Spamblocker exim.conf
- Easy Spam Fighter
- Blockcracking
- Clamav
- Letsencrypt

Plugins or other things:
- Maldetect
- Midnight Commander
- screen

There are others but this is what just comes into my mind.

Had to look some of them up if I'm honest @Richard G

Would have thought a few more people would have commented though.

That's no problem, we all had to learn. And we keep on learning, even now I sometimes see new interesting things I don't know about. ;)

Indeed I also expected that more people would have replied, but to be honest I don't really know what else could be added. On the other hand, my memory also have leaks now and then. :)

Everyday's a school day @Richard G.

We're moving over from cPanel and still trying to work our way around DirectAdmin.

Just trying to find a plugin for Download backups via FTP / SFTP
