yum update -y
Once that finishes running, these commands will start the install:
wget https://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh chmod 755 setup.sh ./setup.sh auto
Once the installation has finished, the "admin" user password will be printed in the terminal for you to save. Once that has completed, you can open the control panel in your browser.
