How to update Services in DirectAdmin using CustomBuild?

It is not that difficult to update your server services in DirectAdmin. By using CustomBuild that comes together with DirectAdmin, you can update the services easily and in just a few steps.

Warning! Only do this after you have backup your website content and database. You’ve been warned!

1. SSH into your DirectAdmin server as “root”.
2. Then type:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild

3. Next, to check the available updates for your server services, type:

./build update

4. Then if you want to see the available update list, type:

./build versions

5. Finally, type this to update all services that have new version:

./build update_versions

That’s all that you need. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the comment form below.
