The process for changing your IP address within DirectAdmin isn’t complicated, but it does come in two parts, which are both very important. Please follow the step-by-step directions outlined below for more information.

Changing the DirectAdmin licensed IP:

  • Please go to the contact us section of our website

Adjusting the IP address within DirectAdmin:

  • Login to your DirectAdmin Virtual/Dedicated server via SSH
  • Next, please run the following command within Linux:

    cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts &&
    ./ 24580 <LICENSE-KEY>

  • Please adjust the items outlined in BOLD to their correct values
  • Then, please restart DirectAdmin by doing the following:

    # /etc/init.d/directadmin restart

  • Next, you’ll need to switch out the IP address by doing:

Really advanced Directadmin licenseing model. Old and reliable panel we are using it on 2 of our dedicated servers and never had vulnerabilities.
