How to install Directadmin Control panel in Centos 7

One of the Best and Simple Control panel for Webhosting Companies

Directadmin is one of the best and simple control panel I have used in my last 10 years career and I will suggest this as an alternate to cPanel for every one. Due to recent Price Hike of cPanel license, it seems fortunes for Directadmin team is on their way and will get a good boosting from now on.

Directadmin has different kind of licenses and you should select the most suitable ones for you.

You can look in the below links for more details on licenses

Installation Steps

IMP Note : Never Install this or any other control panel in a production server even if it is just having a lamp. Always use a freshly Os reloaded with Latest OS available at the time of the installation. In my case I am using Centos 7.x

Also update to the latest available updates and kernel before proceeding and secure ssh if possible before working on this.

[root@ntv ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core)

[root@ntv ~]# yum update

** If kernel is updated, please reboot the server and then proceed further

Install the Pre install commands needed for directadmin. This differs with each kind of os and you need to refer the below link and use respective details

[root@ntv ~]# yum install psmisc net-tools systemd-devel libdb-devel perl-DBI perl-Perl4-CoreLibs xfsprogs rsyslog logrotate crontabs file kernel-headers

You need to have atleast a trial license to install this and need to update license details prior to installation. You need to confirm the ip and Os version are corectly setup in the client area of the directadmin.

For the trial license , you need to register yourself in this link’s Order Now option . https://www.directadmin.com/features_list.php

To install panel it is simple 3 steps

wget https://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh
chmod 755 setup.sh

There will be many questions asked while installation and make sure you give them the correct answers.
