Learn Upgrading to CustomBuild 2.0 With DirectAdmin
Table of Contents
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.
Step 1: Reinstalling the prerequisites
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).
Step 2: Updating CustomBuild
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
Step 3: Altering the options
./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.
