As of April 2021, there is no way to assign reseller abilities to a user from the DA GUI. You must use instead shell commands.
How to convert a user account to a reseller account:
- Log into your DA server via SSH
- Run the commands:
# cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts # ./user_to_reseller.sh USERNAME
The USERNAME has now reseller privileges.
The output of the command executed on our test server:
[root@web /]# cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts [root@web scripts]# ./user_to_reseller.sh plothost Re-configuring user directory /home/plothost. Re-configuring DirectAdmin files. Removing user from the other reseller. Adding reseller to reseller list Changing user owner User plothost has been converted to reseller. [root@web scripts]#
NOTE: the USERNAME is the account name – like “plothost” for example.
