cPanel – create directory alias on domain

Creating aliases on cpanel server is easy – for domains. But when you want to create directory alias for files outside of document root, there is no quick/click option in control panel. By directory alias I mean for example, http://mydomain.com/something. Where /something is directory that is outside of your document root – public_html of domain. Another example, you have domain mydomain.com and you want phpmyadmin to be accessible on http://mydomain.com/phpmyadmin, but phpmyadmin is installed outside of document root of  mydomain.com. You’ll need directory alias. Here is quick way to do it.

Directadmin – install Letsencrypt SSL certificate on server hostname

Letsencrypt is a revolutionary step forward on web security. Free, valid SSL certificates for everyone. I won’t write about how to install and config letsencrypt on Directadmin machine. I will show only how to generate and install letsencrypt certificate on your Directadmin hostname.

When you installed Letsencrypt on Directadmin and tried to install certificate for your server hostname, there is a possibility that you came to this problem: HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

Just do this:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build update
./build letsencrypt

And than install certificate on your server hostname:

/usr/local/directadmin/scripts/letsencrypt.sh request my.serverhostname.com 4096

Open your Directadmin configuration file and change

SSL=0 to SSL=1

Also add this:

carootcert=/usr/local/directadmin/conf/carootcert.pem

Restart your Directadmin and you should be set.

Directadmin – enable and configure Spamassassin automatically on creating user

By default, when you add new user in Directadmin, Spamassassin is disabled. Some users are not aware about Spamassassin, so they’ll have it disabled and will receiving a lot of spam. It is good practice to enable Spamassassin by default and also set some settings. You can do that by adding below code in your /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/custom/user_create_post.sh script. The first step is well described on Directadmin documentation. But you may also want to define some parameters for Spamassassin when user is created. It’s really simple. You can do that by manipulating filter.conf file. Steps below are preformed on Directadmin running on FreeBSD. It should be the same for Linux also.
