Updating DirectAdmin Manually
If you need to update your copy of DirectAdmin manually, you can do so by running the following commands:cd /usr/local/directadmin
wget -O update.tar.gz https://www.directadmin.com/cgi-bin/daupdate?uid=123&lid=1234
tar xvzf update.tar.gz
service directadmin restart
Where 123 and 1234 are your Client ID and License ID, respectively. Note that if you are running FreeBSD, you might need to add a before the ? character in the wget line. If there are errrors extracting the update.tar.gz file, then run:
head -n 1 update.tar.gz
to search for an error. If there is an readble error inside the file, then you’ll need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get your license activated or updated.
