DirectAdmin announced that all DirectAdmin and CustomBuild 2.0 now support MySQL 5.7.
Related changes done to DirectAdmin to support it:
It was actually added back in DA 1.52.0 (October 2017), while DA 1.53.0 is the current version, but wasn’t announced right away to give time for proper testing, which seems to all check out now.
MAKE SQL BACKUPS BEFORE UPGRADING see below.
CustomBuild 2.0 should automatically set the mysql_milestone_16=1 directadmin.conf value for you, so as long as CB2 does the upgrade, you should be fine.
To do the upgrade from an older MySQL version to MySQL 5.7, run:
./build set mysql 5.7
./build set mysql_inst mysql
./build set mysql_backup yes
#make a backup that wont be overwritten, rename the folder
mv mysql_backups mysql_backups.`date +%F`
./build php n
service httpd restart
If you’re running MariaDB, then switching to MySQL might not be 100% straightforward, as higher versions of MariaDB cannot be directly switched over. But (for example), if you’re running a working MariaDB 5.5, then switch to MySQL 5.5, then switch to MySQL 5.7.
The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the availability of MariaDB 10.2.14 and MariaDB 10.1.32, both stable releases, as well as MariaDB Connector/J 2.2.3, the latest stable release in the MariaDB Connector/J 2.2 series, and MariaDB Connector/J 1.7.3, the latest stable release in the MariaDB Connector/J 1.7 series. See the release notes and changelogs for details.

WordPress is a very robust content-management system (CMS) that is free and open source. Because anyone can comment, create an account, and post on WordPress, many malicious actors have created networks of bots and servers that compromise and spam WordPress sites through brute-force attacks.
Fail2Ban is an intrusion prevention software framework that protects computer servers from brute-force attacks. Written in the Python programming language, it is able to run on POSIX systems that have an interface to a packet-control system or firewall installed locally.
Note: In this guide, we will be using version 0.9.6 of Fail2ban on an Debian 9.4 server, but most of it should apply to other distributions as well.

HTTP/2 is the newest version of the HTTP protocol, based off SPDY. Its development was initiated by Google and HTTP/2 is largely based on the codebase and concepts of SPDY.
SPDY has now been deprecated and worldwide adoption for HTTP/2 is in progress. Many hosting companies have already provided support for HTTP/2 due to its added speed.
At the time of writing, DirectAdmin does not provide a one-click way to enable HTTP/2. However, there are multiple ways to achieve HTTP/2 support. The method outlined below has proven to be the most robust and stable approach.
