Hopefully DA is Better than the Competition on these Points

Hi all,

I’ve been using Kloxo and am looking to switch. Some questions:

1. I’ve considered ISPConfig, but I don’t like the fact that the UIDs and GIDs have names such as web3 and client7. This makes it hard to do operations such as chown because I always have to look up user and group names. What does DirectAdmin use for the user and group names (as found in /etc/passwd and /etc/group)?

2. MySQL has a maximum identifier length of 64 for database names and 16 for user names. What maximums does DA allow? Also, is the prefix for database and user names the client’s Unix username or something easy to remember?

3. Can I use yum to update software on my RHEL or CentOS servers, or does DA require that all updates be done via DA?

Thanks!
Steve Amerige
