Updating your DirectAdmin License manually

If you need to update your DirectAdmin license manually, you can do so by running the following commands: cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts...

If you need to update your DirectAdmin license manually, you can do so by running the following commands:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts

./getLicense.sh 123 1234

service directadmin restart

Where 123 and 1234 are your Client ID and License ID, respectively. If there are errrors extracting the update.tar.gz file, then run:

head -n 1 /usr/local/directadmin/conf/license.key

to search for an error. If there is an readable error inside the file, double check the IP you are using matches the IP in the license on our system. Also check that it’s active in our clients section. Failing that, you’ll need to contact sales@directadmin.com to get your license activated or updated.

If you have multiple IPs on your device and wget is binding to the incorrect one, you can specify the IP to bind to by adding it as the last argument:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts
./getLicense.sh 123 1234 1.2.3.4
service directadmin restart
