How to Update 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 –no-check-certificate -O update.tar.gz ‘
tar xvzf update.tar.gz
./directadmin p
cd scripts
/etc/init.d/directadmin restart

Where 123 and 1234are 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, and use /usr/local/etc/rc.d/directadmin restart.  If there are errrors extracting the update.tar.gz file, then run:

head -n 1 update.tar.gz
