How to Install DirectAdmin on CentOS?

DirectAdmin(DA) is a Commercial Hosting Control Panel and is used for selling shared and reseller hosting accounts.

We are going to install DirectAdmin on CentOS 7/8.


What are the requirements?
- Fresh CentOS 7 or CentOS 8, installed on your VPS/Server.


How to install DirectAdmin?

Step 1:
The first step is to log in to your root account using SSH or any other way and enter these commands:

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



Once the installation starts, it may take from 20 to 30 minutes to complete.



Step 2:
After the installation is complete, it will display the login credentials on-screen with the login URL. You can access it by changing the URL in your browser to http://IP-Address:2222 (Replace IP-Address text with your server IP).
