Error c: command not found in DirectAdmin script startips

Are you happy with your current hosting provider ?

It’s not working because of a mistake in the script: /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/startips

The script explains:


but uses:

ADDIP=`${DABIN} c | grep -m1 '^addip=' | cut -d= -f2`

Errors come up with the following commands:

./startips: line 36: c: command not found
./startips: line 62: 2a01:7c8:xxx:xx:xx:xx:0:1: command not found
./startips: line 62: command not found

and a network interface with no IP addresses.

If NGINX is unable to start, the following message will be displayed:

bind() to [2a01:7c8:xxx:xx:xx:xx:0:1]:80 failed (99: Cannot assign requested address)

As a solution:

Temporary workaround for a problem in the DirectAdmin scripts directory, until DirectAdmin fixes it.
