DirectAdmin blacklisted and whitelisted IP

Recently my IP address was blacklisted by directadmin on my own server.  Here's a how-to that may save you time, in case you're unable to login to DirectAdmin.

Start DirectAdmin in debug mode

cd /usr/local/directadmin
killall -9 directadmin
./directadmin b2000

Now try to log into directadmin. You should see the reason why you are unable to. For me it was "Blocking blacklisted IP"

Debug mode. Level 2000

DirectAdmin 1.45.2
Accepting Connections on port 2222
Blocking blacklisted IP

Remove your IP address from DirectAdmin blacklist

vi /usr/local/directadmin/data/admin/ip_blacklist

Add your IP address to DirectAdmin whitelist

vi /usr/local/directadmin/data/admin/ip_whitelist

Now Restart directadmin

service directadmin restart
