New Linux Server Checklist (2017 Edition)

These are some of the basic things I do when I setup a new server

Get the latest directadmin.conf values

With each version of DirectAdmin, new configuration values are introduced that you may not know about. To see ALL these values do the following:

/usr/local/directadmin/directadmin c | sort -n

You can essentially copy/paste the entire results into your /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf replacing anything else in there.
