DirectAdmin Skin or Interface Issues – How we fix this

by | Jan 31, 2021

Wondering how to fix DirectAdmin skin or interface issues? We can help you.

Our customers using DirectAdmin at times report facing issues with the DirectAdmin Skin or Interface. This happens when the DirectAdmin skin is corrupted.

Here at Bobcares, we fix these issues for our customers as a part of Server Management Services.

Today, let’s see how our Expert Support Engineers fix this issue for our customers.

Steps to fix DirectAdmin Skin or Interface Issues

Some of the methods that our Support Techs use to fix DirectAdmin Skin or Interface Issues are given below:

1. Reinstalling skin

First will try to reinstall DirectAdmin skin. Reinstalling skin will fix the issue as the corrupted version will be removed before it.

For this, we can use the following commands:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/data/skins/
2. Recompiling PHP

Another way to fix this issue is to recompile PHP.

For this, we can use the following commands:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build update
./build clean
./build php d
3. Changing DirectAdmin Skin to a New one

In this step, we will change the existing skin to a new one. For this, we will first install other skins to make them available for application.

The steps to follow are given below:

1. First we will connect to the server via SSH.

2. We can use the following command to go to the file which includes different DirectAdmin skins.

cd /usr/local/directadmin/data/skins

3. Next we will make a directory using the following command:

mkdir EvoluSkin

4. Then we will go to the created directory as given below:

cd EvoluSkin

5. After that we will download the Evolution skin using the following command:

wget -O evolution.tar.gz

6. Once the download is complete we can enter these two commands given below:

tar xvzf evolution.tar.gz
cd ..

7. Then we will use the following command to finish the installation:

chown -R diradmin:diradmin EvoluSkin

8 Finally, we will log into the DirectAdmin panel and go to the Reseller level and take Skin management.

From there we can choose the installed skin and click on the “Apply to me” button.

The above steps will fix almost every issue with DirectAdmin skin.
