Version 1.24.3

Released: 2005-06-20

custom script: update_post.sh new

Script to be run after DA updatese itself.

Just create the script in /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/custom/update_post.sh

If it exists during an update, then DA will call it.

custom script: dns_create_post.sh, dns_delete_post.sh new

dns_create_post.sh

dns_delete_post.sh

domain=domain.com

is the only environmental variable. For details about the zone, use dns_write_post.sh

Option to disable webalizer and log rotation new

directadmin.conf

default (without anything in the directadmin.conf)

webalizer=1

rotation=1

Note, that if rotation is turned off, but webalizer is on, webalizer will be running on an active log.

ability to specify multiple email addresses during user creation new

ability to specify multiple email addresses during user creation.

Will be comma seperated. Recomend one space too, but doesn't matter 😉

eg:

user@domain.com, other@other.com, etc...

New regex in the javascript forms:

var filter = /^([a-zA-Z0-9_.-])+@(([a-zA-Z0-9-])+.)+([a-zA-Z0-9]{2,4})+(,s?([a-zA-Z0-9_.-])+@(([a-zA-Z0-9-])+.)+([a-zA-Z0-9]{2,4})+)*$/;

(yes, it's very nasty)

more API commands new

  1. Edit User Login Password

  2. Backups

  3. Mailing lists

  4. Edit User Login Password:

CMD_API_PASSWD

method is to be POST only.

oldpass=oldpassword
passwd=newpass
passwd2=newpass

Update:

Newer DA versions also need:

options=yes
system=yes
ftp=yes
database=yes

to specify which of the system accounts to change.

Note that "Email" is part of the system=yes option.

  1. User Level Backups

CMD_API_SITE_BACKUP

method can be GET or POST.

list current available backup files
domain=domain.com (hidden value, doesn't affect the outcome of the backup, but is required)
create a backup
action=backup
domain=domain.com (hidden value, doesn't affect the outcome of the backup, but is required)

for the following items, include whichever ones you wish to include in the backup. The format is select0=<b>item</b>, where you would use select1=<b>item2</b> for the next item, etc.

  • domain
  • subdomain
  • email
  • forwarder
  • autoresponder
  • vacation
  • list
  • emailsettings
  • ftp
  • ftpsettings
  • database

See the Actual user backup page to see what each item does.

restore a backup
action=restore
domain=domain.com (hidden value, doesn't affect the outcome of the backup, but is required)
file=filename.tar.gz

Include the desired items using the same select0=item technique as above. Use the action=view command from below to see what items are actually available to restore.

view a backup file's contained items.
action=view
domain=domain.com (hidden value, doesn't affect the outcome of the backup, but is required)
file=filename.tar.gz

returns a list of selectable items (see the above list )

  1. Mailing Lists

CMD_API_EMAIL_LIST

method can be GET or POST

action=create
domain=domain.com
name=list   (do not include @domain.com).
action=delete
domain=domain.com
select0=list
(select1=list2) ..etc..
action=add
domain=domain.com
name=list
type=digest  or  list    (one or the other, whichever you are adding to).
email=bob@email.com  (you can use comma sperated lists here)
action=view
domain=domain.com
name=list
returns: s0=email@addr.com&s1=subscriber2@add.com&d0=digest@other.com..etc..
action=modify
domain=domain.com
name=list
this will ouput a large number of settings.. too many to list here.  Just run it to see what you get.
action=delete_subscriber  or   action=delete_subscriber_digest
domain=domain.com
name=list
select0=email@domain.com
(select1=email2@domain.com, other@email.com)..etc..
action=save
domain=domain.com
name=list

you'll nee to also include all of the parameters outputted from the action=modify result. Make any change with them, then save them.

domain=domain.com
(with nothing else)

returns a list of mailling lists in the format:

list=1:2&list2=4:2..etc...

where with 1:2 , the 1 is the number of subscribers, and the 2 is the number of digest subscribers.

log rotation numnber of logs to keep fixed

DA leave the number of logs specified in the admin settings in the logs directory after rotation. This fix will leave that number in the logs directory for each domain, each subdomain (eg, 1 domain, 1 subdomain would leave 10 logs if the limit was set to 5 logs in the admin settings).

debian services control fixed

DA is unable to control the services but it works from ssh. Likely a piping issue.

suspend restored accounts fixed

suspend accounts after restore that were suspended before the backup.

http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=49540#post49540

Will only suspend if the user account was just created.

(unrelated note for john: manual domain suspension set active=no)

crypt fixed

change salt to begin with "$1$salt$" instead of just "salt".

Ensures that whole password is used instead of first 8 chars.
