Most users who have used cPanel know that EasyApache was a great system for easily compiling different software on a cPanel server. DirectAdmin has something like this that does not come by default but can be added. To add Custom Build to DirectAdmin, do the following:

  1. Log into SSH as root
  2. execute this command:
    /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/build plugin
  3. Exit

That’s it. Now you can log into DirectAdmin and go to “Extra Features >> Custom Build 2.0”.
