Default ISPConfig & Bind chroot not starting

Hi all,

Running CentOS 4.3, bind-chroot (rpm) this info might help you.

I think I've found an issue in /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/named.conf.master. Each time a change is made to DNS ISPConfig restarts BIND and copy that file (root/ispconfig/isp/conf/named.conf.master) to /etc/named.conf (simlink to /var/chroot/etc/named.conf), however there is a configuration mistake in named.conf.master, where is writen :
pid-file "/var/named/chroot/var/run/named/";
should be changed to :
pid-file "/var/run/named/";
because BIND is running in a chroot mode.
you HAVE TO:
cd /var/named/chroot/
mkdir -p var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
chmod 770 var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
chown root.named var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
or bind wil not work.

Please review this and correct me if I'm wrong.
