Login as root and download the setup.sh file
Hint: Use “fetch” instead of “wget” on FreeBSD systems.
Change permissions on the setup.sh file
chmod 755 setup.sh
Run the script
The auto method will be best for most people. It automatically installs everything for you, including the CSF firewall.
It can also be called as ‘./setup.sh’ without options, which requires input but allows for customization.
Important: The hostname should not be the same as the primary domain name. e.g. merahost.org is not a good hostname, where server.merahost.org is. Having the same host/main domain name will cause e-mail and FTP problems. Also, please make sure the hostname resolves once you setup DNS.
Accessing the Control Panel
DirectAdmin can be accessed at http://server.ip.address:2222 — use the Admin username/password specified in the setup.txt file in your scripts directory.
