LAN Install Guide

DirectAdmin can now run on a LAN without any extra steps.
It previously requierd some non-standard steps to get it running, but now it's automatic.

  1. Install DirectAdmin normally, using the " auto" method
    • When it asks for which ethernet device, make sure you pick the device that holds the LAN IP (often eth0, ens192, venet0, etc).
    • Enter the external license IP, and not the LAN ip when asked.
