    centos 8 with directadmin

    Hi
    My server runs on centos 7 with plesk , I am planning to migrate to centos 8 with directadmin
    My questions are:
    is directadmin good at security?
    Should I stay on centos 7 or migrate to centos 8 ?
    Best regards

      DirectAdmin is prem, we use it and we've had no issues with it.

      We are currently running CentOS 7 and I think it does work with CentOS 8. If not they are beta testing it. But not 100% sure on that one.

      Having no DirectAdmin or Plesk is always more secure.

      I'd probably wait with CentOS 8 btw, you can use it but it just came out. I would just stick with 7 for now if you need stability and good support

      Plesk more prem than DA, as DA became popular due to cPanel increased prices for their control panel.

      Well Web Pros aka Plesk has just been "sold" so maybe they will up the prices again?

      Well, there are plenty of providers who offer DA for free. There are no guarantees that Plesk won't up their prices. They've just been sold, so I'm guessing someone is gonna want to get their money back at some point.

      It's fine, I run a few websites on it across a few servers, including for ExtraVM.

      Edit: Talking about no control panel, I don't know about DirectAdmin for CentOS 8.

      their protection is on sales page only, so if someone decide to update the sales page, your protection will disappear as nothing state about protection against price increase in their terms and condition, with 30 days/month contract like they do anyone can offers protection against price increase as it's for 30 days only and not lifetime.

      My point is that the DA wasn't popular till the cPanel increase the prices, if tomorrow cPanel do reverse on their prices and go back to old style prices, I bet you that everyone jumps back without a single hesitation.

    • I ran DirectAdmin on CentOS 8. It worked fine, no significant issues. But mod_ruid2 is broken.

      Is that a fixable error? Or need to contact DirectAdmin support?
