what is DerictAdmin?





SC__Programmer
ok so i reached the requirements to have a site,but Server 1,2,and 3 arent available.

so server 1 says cPanel and the rest say DiretAdmin,ive had experience with cPanel but ive never heard of DirectAdmin =\

so should i just wait till 1 comes back up,or go ahead and get the DirectAdmin(i dont really need my site right now)?but i still want to know what DirectAdmin is Wink

Direct Admin is just a way to interact with Administration of your site.

There's a good tutorial to show you how it works here: http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-26717.html

I'm testing auto-url detect of the forums!
SC__Programmer
k thanks =]

i submitted my request...the DirectAdmin looks easy enough Very Happy
GoldenEagle
It's definitely not hard to use. If you used Cpanel without much trouble this is pretty easy to get the hang of.

We usually only have one server open at a time and VPS1 is rather full at the moment so you would be waiting for years. Wink

Anyway, I see you got an account already on server 4, good luck with it! You should check out the http://www.site-helper.com/ site, it's the official DirectAdmin help site. But normally most of it should be straightforward and you should put your files in /domains/<(sub)domain name>/public_html/ .

i did Very Happy

but i got one more question...when i go to my /config it gives this...



does it take a few days for my site's directadmin to start working?
Bondings
It seems like the config one was broken. It's a link to the normal url ( http://www.frihost.org:2222 , basically any domain/ip on the server with 2222 behind it), though.

Anyway, it's fixed now. Very Happy

You have to create a database with user in DirectAdmin and use that username/password.
SC__Programmer
ok...this is probably annoying you but do you mean a SQL DB?

Sorry if im killing you with questions Wink

Yes, you first need to create a MySQL database in DirectAdmin. You can find more information about creating the database here: http://www.site-helper.com/mysql.html .
