  • How to install Direct admin in a Linux server?

Do you want to install direct admin on your Linux server? Well, I am here to demonstrate how you can install direct admin.

Step1: Do you meet the system requirements? Clean OS installs At least one external IP address. Supported OS and versions: CloudLinux:

6.x 64-bit, 7.x 64-bit, 8.x 64-bit

AlmaLinux / RHEL / CentOS:

7.x 64-bit, 8.x 64-bit


8.x 64-bit, 9.x 64-bit, 10.x 64-bit, 11.x 64-bit ALPHA


16.04 64-bit, 18.04 64-bit, 20.04 64-bit


11.x 64-bit, 12.x 64-bit

Step2: Make sure your license information is correct

Sign in to your client account and click the "view" link next to your license here: https://www.directadmin.com/clients/

Verify that the server IP address and operating system is correct. Also make sure that the license is Active and Verified (if it isn't, then our billing system hasn't processed your order yet).

Step3: Begin the installation!

Log in as root to your server, download the installation script, and run it:

# bash <(curl -Ss https://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh || wget -O - https://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh) auto The auto method will be best for most people. It automatically installs everything for you, including the CSF firewall. It can also be called without the'auto' option, which requires input but allows for customization. Important: The hostname should not be the same as the primary domain name. e.g. gary.com is not a good hostname, where server.gary.com is. Having the same host/main domain name will cause e-mail and FTP problems. Also, please make sure the hostname resolves once you set up DNS.

Accessing the Control Panel

DirectAdmin can be accessed at http://server.ip.address:2222. Use the Admin username/password from the output information provided by setup.sh (the same information is specified in the /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/setup.txt file)
