1. So I went into ISPconfig3 >> DNS >> Add DNS Zone With Wizard
2. It created a file in "/var/named" called pri.mydomain.com (Not sure where it got the "pri" from??)
- Below I Changed the IP to ones that aren't mine.
[root@server1 named]# cat pri.mydomain.com
@ IN SOA ns1.mydomain.com. info.mydomain.com. (
2012060501 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
7200 ; refresh, seconds
540 ; retry, seconds
604800 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds
mydomain.com. 3600 A 199.192.000.140
mydomain.com. 3600 MX 10 mail.mydomain.com.
mydomain.com. 3600 NS ns1.mydomain.com.
mydomain.com. 3600 NS ns2.mydomain.com.
mail 3600 A 199.192.000.140
www 3600 A 199.192.000.140
However, since this didn't technically tell me how to setup my name servers ns1.mydomain.com and n2.mydomain.com with their proper IP... I figured I am going about this the wrong way.
So from ISPconfig3 I chose the DNS option to delete the zone and it no longer appears in ISPconfig3 but that file still exists. Is this normal?
I have a feeling that by the time I setup my name servers, I will have to do a fresh install to undo any mess I make from testing lol.
