It’s Not Working – things to check

Missing dns_write_post.sh file

When daflare is installed, it creates an almost empty file at /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/custom/dns_write_post.sh

daflare’s actual activation script is stored within the plugins folder, but at present this file needs to exist for the plugin’s script to be called by DirectAdmin. It may be that DirectAdmin removes this requirement in the future.

Incorrect PHP version message

daflare requires PHP version 7.3+

If you get a message saying that you have an incorrect version of PHP, you can easily point daflare to a custom PHP binary.

Domain zone file not found error

If you are running the Debian or FreeBSD distro, you may have come across the following error if you switch the Direct Zone File Access mode to ‘Standard’.

Domain zone file not found - maybe domain has not been created on the server...

Version 0.11.6b or greater fixes this error. Update to this version by going to the DirectAdmin Plugin Manager and click on + next to daflare, then on ‘Update’.
