Sometimes, a feature that you've been anxiously waiting on has been completed and included in the pre-release version of your favorite panel and you just cannot wait to test it out. Luckily, you don't have to if that feature is available in the pre-release version!
Use the following commands to update to a pre-release version of DirectAdmin, but do note that you may encounter some quirks or bugs when upgrading to a non-stable version:
userid=`grep uid /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/setup.txt | cut -d= -f2`; licenseid=`grep lid /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/setup.txt | cut -d= -f2` cd /usr/local/directadmin wget --no-check-certificate -O new.tar.gz "https://www.directadmin.com/cgi-bin/daupdate?redirect=ok&uid=$userid&lid=$licenseid&channel=beta" tar xvzf new.tar.gz ./directadmin p scripts/update.sh killall -9 directadmin ./directadmin d
Because updates do not issue full configuration rewrites, you must issue a full rewrite to get any template changes that may have been included in the update. I find that it is always a best practice to issue the rewrite_confs command just in case. The command is as follows:
cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild ./build rewrite_confs
