Step 1: System requirements?
- Clean OS install: check install.php to ensure you've got a supported OS
- At least one external IP address (IP Requirements)
- SSH installed, gcc, g++, openssl-devel installed.
- Run the pre-install commands before starting the install
yum install wget tar 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 glibc-headers kernel-devel expat-devel psmisc net-tools systemd-devel libdb-devel perl-DBI perl-Perl4-CoreLibs perl-libwww-perl xfsprogs rsyslog logrotate crontabs file kernel-headers ipset

Step 2: Make sure your license information is correct. We sell licenses or you can buy one directly from DirectAdmin.
Step 3: Begin the installation
Login as root and run this command:
bash <(curl -Ss https://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh || wget -O - https://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh) auto
The auto method will be best for most people. It automatically installs everything for you, including the CSF firewall.
Setup SSL Certificates:
This step is only required if you wish to use DirectAdmin through SSL. You will also have to change set SSL=1 in the directadmin.conf file: http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=15
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.
Feel free to add a ticket to have us install it for you. Also, if you don't know how to DNS, we can create custom DNS for you on the server. These two options will take up to 24 hours to complete, so you might want to try them yourself first if you're in a hurry.
