How to change your server IP address and change ttl zonefile dns on directadmin
« on: สิงหาคม 09, 2021, 09:29:36 PM »
If your server requires a new server IP due to server move, or network restructuring, follow the following steps to update your license and system.

1) Contact DirectAdmin ahead of the move to notify them of the new IP address.  Include the old IP, and license ID.  Note that if you have an internal license, you must be the datacenter to make this request.  If you cannot view your license from your clients section then you do not have authority to issue the request.   Note that DirectAdmin will continue to run even after we change the IP.  You just can't update the license or DA at this time.  Also ensure you have enough time before the license expires (eg: more than a day).

2) Boot the server with the new server ip.  Do this the same way you did originally for the old server IP.  This should be done in your system's network settings and not in DirectAdmin (yet).  Do not add the IP to DA through the IP Manager.

DirectAdmin will not be running, as the license file will be invalid.

Assuming we got your email and processed the request in step 1), you should now be able to get the new license file:
