You can check the current version of apache by running
CustomBuild – current
If you’re using custombuild (as most new boxes are), run the following
./build php n
CustomApache – end-of-life
If you are using customapache with the 1.3 version of apache to the most recent, run the following:
If you’re using apache 2.x, use “./build apache_2” isntead of apache_mod_ssl.
This should update both the configure options and the version of apache to the most recent version. Once the update has completed, you’ll need to restart apache:
/sbin/service httpd restart
To upgrade mysql using the custombuild script, do the following:
./build set mysql 5.1
./build set mysql_inst yes
./build set mysql_backup yes
Where mysql can be 5.0, 5.1 or 5.5.
A full raw sql backup will be run prior to the upgrade if you have mysql_backup=yes set. It goes without saying, always make backups, either with this tool, or with other means.
After the mysql update, always recompile php.
./build php n
If you would like your pop users to be able to change their own email passwords without having to login to the control panel, simply give them this link:
Where www.domain.com is either your domain, hostname, or IP address.
More information on this function and how you can use it via API can be found Here.
There is also a DA plugin that also gives email users the ability to change their passwords, and vacation messages, and show them their email stats, all in once place:
For automated vacation messages changes by email users, it can be implemented via API here, or just use the plugin above:http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13112
A squirrelmail plugin has been created which allows interaction with DirectAdmin showing usage, as well as the ability to change the password and vacation message:
There are several ways to accomplish this task, but the simplest to understand is to use php.
To do this, you need to create the page that will do the forwarding. This can be any page, as long as it ends in “.php”. If you are trying to redirect a domain, you’d create “index.php” inside the public_html directory.
Once you decide which page you will use, then create the file and enter the following text:
Where http://whereyouwant.com/to/go.html is the location that you want the page to forward to. You can use local values, ie: /page.html, or full urls as in the above example (http://..etc.)
Another way to accomplish this is to use an .htaccess file in the public_html directory. Sample contents:
Redirect 301 / http://whereyouwant.com/to/go.html
