Want to install RainLoop on Directadmin server an easy way? We have a solution for you. Please check it here.

*** Directadmin with CustomBuild 2 is only supported. We don't guarantee it will work with CustomBuild 1.x. ***

Run the following commands to check your CustomBuild version:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
./build version

If you see "2.0.0 (rev: 1694)" you're OK to follow the guide. Numbers after "rev:" might differ, you can ignore them. If you have 1.x you should upgrade it first.

Download installer for Directadmin server:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/
wget -O
chmod 755

and run it:


The script will do the following:

  • download the latest version of RainLoop and install it under /var/www/html/rainloop/. 
  • add all required aliases into Directadmin, so that you could run it under

Please note it will create a MySQL Database with an user, which you will need to use if you want to allow your users to maintain their contacts lists. MySQL credentials will be shown only once in a shell console so you need to keep them.

After installation is complete go to http://hostname/rainloop/?admin to complete and configure installation! Default username/password for admin access:

  • username: admin
  • password: 12345

You can use the script later for upgrading installation with a newer version of RainLoop. Just simply run the script once more. It will do a source code upgrade.
