Support for Direct Admin

Anthony Smith shared this idea 5 months ago
In Progress

<snipped> It would be great to see JetBackup for DirectAdmin as thousands of us prepare to switch to the DA platform.

I'd like to add that we're very excited with the progress on this integration. The JetBackup dev team has been working diligently with us to offer a highly integrated solution using our API. This method offers many many benefits, including being "future proof" for any back-end changes or optional variances DA might have, rather than trying to manage files directly in the back-end. I'm glad the decision was made to go this route, although it is the harder solution to implement, it's definitely the correct one, and the benefits of doing it the "right way" will definitely pay off in the future. For example, the simple act of adding an email account can vary wildly, including mirroring it to a remote box, so things like that must go through the API anyway. This will be a very exciting add on module for any DirectAdmin server!

Hi,


Thank you for the feedback.

It is Under consideration to create a StandAlone and/or DirectAdmin backup solution.

Hi All,

Just a follow up to update that we've started to evaluate the process of creating JetBackup for DA.

We will update here accordingly.

Perfect. I am a subscriber to cPanel. But as I'm moving to DirectAdmin, we need it urgently. You can be sure that many will need it.

we all need it ASAP!

Can't wait! I've been waiting for this forever. 👌

Most cPanel clients will migrate to directadmin and it will be nice to have jetbackup for them.I support the development and I guarantee you will have many looking!

I also support the feature. hope the good news is coming from JetApps. :)

Hey folks from Jetapps, people from everywhere in the world (single customers as also many whole network centers with many 1000s of customers/licenses) are right now changing from cPanel/WHM to DirectAdmin because of the last cPanel/WHM price changes (200% - 800%) ! - Dear JetApp stuff, this is the time, this is your time to jump in and patch the hole with the not so userfriendly backup feature in DirectAdmin. You maybe not will get a lot of the end customers, but you may can get the whole stuff, the network centers, if you do it now! If you follow the DA boards, there are maybe 3-4 people which could help you with their knowledge, experience and are programmers in DA too, Martynas (programming DA custombuild), Andrea (not having much time since he have full time job), and - my recommendation - Alex, alias Poralix (https://www.poralix.com/) .. i dont make advertisment here, i didnt told him my posting here, its just my personal recommendation - do it together, be faster together, and take the money from all the people leaving cPanel/WHM with need of a userfriendly backup solution as it is yours. .. just my 2 cents ..

Hi, I strongly support this software, we will drop all cpanel...


I have about 400 cpanels.

after what cpanel did ITS A MUST

Definitely, work on a DA version, seems it is going to have a flood of customers! :)

photo

Please urgent.

Any updates on if/when?

photo

Definitely keen on this. Been using JetBackup for years on cPanel systems. But I cannot tolerate the >400% increase they are trying to ram where the sun don't shine. It would be a huge asset for DirectAdmin users.

photo

This need to be done ASAP, moving all my cPanel servers to DirectAdmin (due to price increase) and I need to use JetBackup as well

Mega Provedor migrate 300 servers in Brazil from cPanel to DirectAdmin

Our company will soon migrate to DirectAdmin, please create a system for directdmin as soon as possible to continue buying the 54 jetbackup licenses we handle ...

photo

Will be migrating from cPanel to DirectAdmin and would love to keep using Jetbackup +1 from me!

photo

We have near 15 Jetbackup licenses, and adding more, but from 1 more month we will start issuing DirectAdmin nodes, not Cpanel, please create jetbackup addon for directadmin

Stand alone version works ? https://www.jetbackup.com/jetbackup-for-linux/ Anyone tried it ?

photo

They said on Facebook that it would need to be each user manually set up, I don't know how hard would it be to getting it to work

photo

Then I assume Stand Alone + a DA plugin with the proper hooks per server will do the job. (hopefully...)

photo

Hopefully.. they claimed it will take 6-9 months for a DA plugin, which I found a lot of time since a lot of people are migrating on September, if someone comes with a plugin first they may loose a lot of customers. DA is also working on improving their own backup system

Hi All,


Just a follow up to update on our progress and roadmap ahead...


As you may have noted, "JetBackup for Linux" was just released. This will be used as a basic foundation for other control panel implementation.


Our next step will be to design the core & tools for "Control panel implementation" (any control panel), and right after we will push DirectAdmin official support.


Stay tuned! :)

Excited to see this feature is in progress!

It is very important for us we are migrating to DirectAdmin and we need this solution soon!

photo

We are eagerly waiting for DirectAdmin support. It will be great if you can launch this or make it available as soon as possible. Thank you!

is there a guide on using the linux version with DirectAdmin?

photo

The current Linux version was not designed to run alongside with a control panel, it will be best to patiently wait for our official release :)

photo

Kindly update ASAP. As you are aware of the price update from September 2019. Before that, we need to migrate from CPanel to DirectAdmin

photo

waiting for it too! i need it also

photo

Yep, registered to voice my positive vibe of how needed JetApps are for DA. Really want to continue with this JetApps and JetBackup.

My CP server has been using jetbackup, and due to cost issues, I will have to switch to directadmin.

It’s even better if jetbackup can automatically restore cPanel data to directadmin.

photo

Just my two cents this needs to be developed ASAP if you want to benefit. Sometime in the future will not work for people hosting sites, we can not go without backups for a week never mind until "Some time in the future"


There will be hundreds of thousands of servers (if not millions) moving to DA so by extension that means they stop paying for your Cpanel plugin.


This one needs to be quick.

Man, thats so true. I offered them already contact to a dedicated DA professional, no reaction. In the meantime this means for a lot of us .. back 2 the roots .. rsync .. https://www.howtogeek.com/427480/how-to-back-up-your-linux-system/

They lost me as a client found a much better already existing plugin for DA. As is often the case big companies take too long to respond in situations like this. Can not wait for their roadmap, my clients need stable backups.

Hi Gary,


Thank you for the feedback. As a small company, we are working hard on several major projects to meet the needs of our user base. DirectAdmin support is one of multiple highly requested features - we are working to support DirectAdmin and other control panels universally. This will not only allow us to integrate and release official support for 3rd party control panels much quicker, but also let our community create their own control panel plugins.


Adding support for 3rd party integration is not a quick process and a rushed implementation could create more issues than it solves for our users. Data protection and security remain our top priorities, and this requires careful consideration with all new features.


Best Regards,

JetApps Team.

any news regards jetbackup for directadmin? its been 2 months

photo

Lol there are better alternatives but they just edited my post above. Seems they would rather leave you without backups than get on and create a solution.

photo
1

Agreed, we do need solid backups. I also found the other solution really useful. Thanks to your post.... Too long to wait for me as busy migrating all clients.

photo

@Gary You were mentioning their competition. It was evident that they were going to remove your comment. I doubt you wouldn't do the same if it were your business. :)


Thus, it's not like it's a long-term solution when compared to the remarkable features jetbackups has. The alternatives out there - even the one you presented is just temporary while Jetbackup is not available for Directadmin.

Nonetheless, it is a lesson for any company developing plugins for a specific product. It's always better to create a product non-dependent on any other third-party and only then develop a plugin for it.

photo

I was merely offering a current alternative nothing to stop anyone switching back to Jet when it is ready. No ETA sometime in the future is no help to those of us hosting client sites. Were it my business I probably WOULD offer an alternative until my solution were ready, it would create much better will than "We don't know when it will be ready"

photo

@Gary - I tried to contact you on FB, please share your info with me, thank you!

photo

@Gary Well, considering you are - most likely - helping your own competitors when you suggested that alternative, I actually don't doubt you would. I suppose you are one of the few good people out there showing that money is not everything. =)

Trust me if it meant my clients were without reliable, easily restorable backups I would find them an alternative.

An Alpha/Beta ETA would be great so we can test now that we have "fresh" or new / testing systems and report back.

Hi All, 

We have reevaluated our timeframe for JetBackup for DirectAdmin after about a month of development;our team's current estimate for release to EDGE tier is about 4-6 months. 

With our current roadmap, that includes implementing the core and tools needed for 3rd-party integration with JetBackup, then pushing our official DirectAdmin support to the EDGE version. 

Thank you for everyone's feedback and continued support for JetBackup. 

Please stay tuned for future updates! 

Best Regards,
JetApps Team.

4-6 months? people need this solution ASAP because of cpanel move...

photo

Well, you just lost a client here , and an advocate for your business. I’ll make sure to switch clients off of your software as well , ASAP


You have had AMPLE time to get your heads out of your tail ends and get this done . Instead, you chose to ignore things , pushing garbage like bare Linux and cPanel updates out first. This shows your lack of priorities here


Like every other piece of Jetappa software, this will be abandonware, just watch

Hi, I called on Messenger. :)

I have to agree with the sentiment here. Seriously????!?!?!?!? 4-6 months is a pretty horrible timeframe.I get that development takes time, but this should have been started on months ago, and yes it shouldn't be THAT hard to do (coming from someone who actually develops things).

You just lost a good chunk of business with this model of "we will do it when we feel like it". Your customers need proper backups, and you failed them.

Yeah im in the same boat as alot of you I am getting ready to leave Cpanel. Honestly not been impressed with Cpanel for many years. the buyout from another company reminds me of the way EIG been working. Anyways I am to moving to direct admin.

You can look me up on FB Paul if you need help

Well I am never going to turn down someone offering their advice and help. Which I always in turn might know something i can help you with as well.

I search your name in FB though and cant seem to find you. Saw 4 people with that name, but none that look like the picture I see here. Ill see if I can PM you here.

edit

OOPS I missed the see more option, I found you and added you.
