    cannot complete installing DirectAdmin on Xen VPS

    the error returned

    ## REPORT_START
    Backup of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.back successfull

    *** Unable to read directadmin.conf. Check permissions and make sure that it exists. Cannot find the diradmin user. Make sure the diradmin user exists in your system.<br>

    ## INSTALL_FAILED
    ## REPORT_END

    the main node is CentOS 5. The guest OS is CentOS 4 template from HyperVM. Both they are 64bit. I have checked directadmin.conf is existed, diradmin user existed. But the installation was not completed. It lost some files, and following the DA support, it might be the OS incompatibility.

    Is there any idea to fix?

    Thank you.

    Check permissions and make sure that it exists.
    If you have determined that it is there, make sure it is owned by the proper user so it can be read. It would be the same for your user trying to read a config file owned by root - you would get an access denied.

    That works, but just to avoid confusion, the -R (recursive) option isn't needed when your just working with 1 file

    all the things are correct. It's just because of wrong OS setting in license. It's fixed after correcting OS setting
