DirectAdmin comes with a handy, built-in tool called CustomBuild, which allows you to install, remove, and/or recompile programs from source. Recently, there has been a revision of CustomBuild (often abbreviated as CB) to version 2.0. In this guide, you will see how to upgrade your CustomBuild 1.1 or 1.2 installation to 2.0.
As older DirectAdmin installations sometimes don't have the required software installed for DirectAdmin to run correctly, try running these preinstall commands again:
yum install wget gcc gcc-c++ flex bison make bind bind-libs bind-utils openssl openssl-devel perl quota libaio \ libcom_err-devel libcurl-devel gd zlib-devel zip unzip libcap-devel cronie bzip2 cyrus-sasl-devel perl-ExtUtils-Embed \ autoconf automake libtool which patch mailx bzip2-devel lsof db4-devel psmisc net-tools systemd-devel libdb-devel perl-DBI xfsprogs rsyslog logrotate crontabs
Note: this command may only be executed on CentOS (7).
As CustomBuild has been completely revised, it also comes with a new configuration. This means you can't port your existing configuration to CB 2.0. Make sure to have a backup!
cd /usr/local/directadmin mv custombuild custombuild_1.x wget -O custombuild.tar.gz http://files.directadmin.com/services/custombuild/2.0/custombuild.tar.gz tar xvzf custombuild.tar.gz cd custombuild ./build
./build, the new options configuration file has been created. Open this file and make the necessary changes.
After confirming your changes are correct, install the software according to the CustomBuild configuration:
./build all d ./build rewrite_confs
CustomBuild will now be updated.
