Any expiriances on upgrading the mydns (mydns) (MySQL 5.0.51a)
I'm having some problems with it when I try to use it as a recursive nameserver. (Huge syslog and daemon files with same error over and over.)

mydns is not a resolver, so it can not do recursive lookups. If you want to use the server that runs mydns also as resolver, then you might have to install a resolver like dnsmask on the same server and configure mydns to redirect all recursive queries to dnsmasq.

Here is a exmaple for such a configuration:

Actually there is an place in the configuration file for recursive server ip address. /etc/mydns.conf
All you have to do is enter the IP address and restart the service. Works ok for my test server. Problem is every now and then it goes crazy and starts to log insane amounts of errors. I'm trying to create a very small OpenVZ DNS server for LAN environment.


log = LOG_DAEMON # Facility to use for program output (LOG_*/stdout/stderr)
pidfile = /var/run/ # Path to PID file
timeout = 120 # Number of seconds after which queries time out
multicpu = 1 # Number of CPUs installed on your system
recursive = # Location of recursive resolver

Did you check

cat /proc/user_beancounters
if there's anything on the failcnt column? Maybe it's a problem with the resources of the VM.

I'll try that. It would be pity though since I planned to have a 'small' VM.
