How to Suspend/Unsuspend @ DirectAdmin via SSH

Hello guys, DirectAdmin continues to improve itself. Regardless of license or not, you can suspend the account and unsuspend it again with the commands below:

To suspend an account (any account name):
/usr/local/directadmin/directadmin –suspend-user user = username

Restart account (unsuspend):

/usr/local/directadmin/directadmin --unsuspend-user user = username

Closing the domain address (a user may have multiple domains, so if you want to close a domain you can do the following):

/usr/local/directadmin/directadmin –suspend-domain domain =

Unsuspend the domain address:

/usr/local/directadmin/directadmin –unsuspend-domain domain =


Also if you want to check users' config files:

User conf file:


Domain conf file:


Do not forget to do an apache rewrite if you make changes.
