Bind, Postfix and possibly more problems from "http://" domain entry
I had a reseller add a domain a few days ago. In the "Domain" field he put "" instead of "".

I delete the domain from the ISPconfig web interface, but I'm still having problems.

I'm having all kinds of problems. Postfix wouldn't start after a server reboot. I went into /etc/postfix/local-host-names and pulled out the domain and postfix started working again. The error was something like "Postfix: missing dictionary: www.http".

Second problem I've found so far is that bind is not updating when I make changes through the web interface. When I run "php /root/ispconfig/scripts/writeconf.php" I get a bunch of PHP warnings about undefined constants, then a segmentation fault.

I'm not sure where to all to go to get rid of this lingering domain. I've looked around in the ispconfig database, but the structure is a bit confusing to me. Any ideas?

Please don't make changes manually in the ISPConfig database.
You can use ISPConfig's serch function to search for the domain.

A segmentation fault is normally an indication for some kind of hardware problem (memory, etc.). You could check your memory with memtest86:

Thanks for the quick reponse!

I think you might have missed the actual problem. I deleted the site and domain from ISPconfig, but it left pieces of it in certain places. After I deleted it, there was still the 'bad' domain name in /etc/postfix/local-host-names and /etc/named.conf still had the bad domain name in it.

DNS doesn't update at all now, even after pulling out the http:// domain name out of /etc/named.conf and /etc/postfix/local-host-names. I'm assuming it's still in the database somewhere that I can't see. I haven't modified the database by hand by the way. I'm by no means, a DBA.

Have you emptied the recycle bin's in ISP-Manager and DNS-Manager?

I did previously and everything emptied out fine. I later re-added the site with the correct domain name. Now I'm trying to delete the domain, site and the customer, and now I can't seem to get the DNS bin to empty. I'm about to the point of re-building and starting fresh.

Have you waited about one minute between deleting the DNS-records until you emptied the recycle bin? ISPConfig needs some time to modify the config files before it unlocks the records in the database again.
