Step to install DirectAdmin to a clean CentOS 5.6
I just added 1TB WDC Black for my server and change from Fedora 6 to CentOS 5.6
After you install the clean OS, you must install gcc and gcc++ if not the error will output like this
*** gcc is required for compiling, please install gcc (yum install gcc)****** g++ is required for compiling, please install g++ (yum install gcc-c++)***
*** cannot find /usr/sbin/setquota. Please make sure that quota is installed (yum install quota) ***
*** You have /var partition. The databases, emails and logs will use this partition. *MAKE SURE* its adequately large (6 gig or larger)
Press ctrl-c in the next 3 seconds if you need to stop
Installation didn't pass, halting install.
Once requirements are met, run the following to continue the install:
So, after you login as root, you need to
# yum install gcc
# yum install gcc-c++
# yum install quota
# cd /root/
# wget http://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh
