Server group select does not work with DirectAdmin


Recommended Posts


I was excited to start using the "select group" feature for DirectAdmin to allow clients to easily choose between server locations, instead of having so many packages created. However, it does seem to not work with the standard webhosting packages.

When creating a standard user package with DirectAdmin a dropdown menu appears with a IP address under the module, I'll attach a screenshot. This IP address is required to match with the server in which the package is created. The IP address seems to default to the topmost server in Server Groups window. If it doesn't match, the following error is thrown when attempting to create a user:

{s:5:"error";s:1:"1";s:4:"text";s:21:"Cannot Create Account";s:7:"details";s:40:"That IP does not exist in your list<br>";}

Since you cannot choose more IP addresses the Server Group select feature does not work and will only allow you to create an account on the server which the IP address belongs to.

The feature does work with reseller accounts, since it has the options "shared" and "assigned" for IP addresses thus does not need the server IP address to correspond with the IP address field.

I hope this makes sense, let me know if I need to elaborate.
