Currently this tool is only supported on DirectAdmin servers. The tool requires the Python header files and MySQL-python.
To install this tool on a DirectAdmin server, make sure you have installed the Python development package and the Python package manager (pip) for your distribution. If MySQL-python isn't installed yet, make sure the mysql_config tool is in your $PATH.
To install the latest version:
pip install server_check
To install on Debian 6/7 based DirectAdmin servers:
apt-get install python-dev python-pip && PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin pip install server_check
