How to enable notifications for account creation in DirectAdmin

DirectAdmin has an option that allows admins to receive email notifications when an account is created. This can be useful if you want to keep track of accounts creation. Some companies have policies that require logging such operations.

The DirectAdmin control panel has an option that must be set in /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf :

notify_admins_on_all_account_creation 1

To set the option use the commands:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build set notify_admins_on_all_account_creation 1
service directadmin restart

You will receive notification in DA>>Messages. If you have enabled the “E-mail a copy of all messages” option in Messages settings, then you will also receive email notifications.

Emails will look like this:

da account notification
DirectAdmin New account notification
Email Subject: New Message: User account demo222 has just been created

Email Body:
A new message or response with subject:

User account demo222 has just been created

has arrived for you to view.
