Upgrade Your DirectAdmin or Your License Might Stop Working

DirectAdminLowEndTalk Administrator emeritus @jar drew the community’s attention to a change that could affect you if you run DirectAdmin.

DA has moved to a key-based licensing infrastructure, and they shut off the old system on January 31, 2022.  It should have been transparent and was if you’re running an up-to-date version (1.63.4 or later).  If you’re running an earlier version, it doesn’t know about this new key-based system, so when the old system was shut off, it can’t verify your license any further.

The solution is simple: upgrade!

Note that if you’re just a user (i.e., you purchased shared hosting), this doesn’t not affect you.  Well, it could affect you if your host’s DA stops working, but they’d have to be the one to fix it.
