We recommend that you install DirectAdmin within a screen session. The Screen Session will create a Shell Session that will stay Active if a Network Disruption (between you and the server) occurs and your DirectAdmin Installation will not be Discontinued.

yum -y install screen && screen

wget -O setup.sh https://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh && chmod 755 setup.sh && ./setup.sh auto
