Default DNS Issue

I know I've seen this addressed before, cant seem to find it today.
On occasion, my DNS service will just stop. Has always easily restarted - until yesterday.
I tried to restart with ISPConfig, no start.
Logged into server, and try to start, this is what I get..

[***@** ~]# /etc/init.d/named start
Starting named:
Error in named configuration:
/etc/named.conf:3: change directory to '/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/multidoc/edit' failed: file not found

/etc/named.conf:3: parsing failed
[FAILED]
[***@*** ~]# /etc/init.d/named stop
Stopping named: [FAILED]
[***@*** ~]# /etc/init.d/named restart
Stopping named: [FAILED]
Starting named:
Error in named configuration:
/etc/named.conf:3: change directory to '/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/multidoc/edit' failed: file not found

/etc/named.conf:3: parsing failed
[FAILED]

No changes were made, no new sites or anything.
All the websites still come up, albeit, with much slower access to them.

Where do I need to look??

The machine is 64 bit, CentOS5, set up with the perfect setup, and has been operational since late July, early August.

Thanks.

Thumbs up Figured It Out!!

Thanks to these links:

and

falko gave me the solution here :
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...t=11207&page=3

Here's what happened.
CentOS updated DNS on Tuesday (I didn't redo permissions after upgrade - should have according to messages - never occured to me. What do you expect from a relative newbie to this ). I added a new site on Wednesday, DNS down on Thursday.

Had to change the zone files pointer in ISPConfig to /var/named/chroot/var/named and changed the line in named.config file to read the same.

Still received error on start, so manually deleted the new site in the named.config file, and deleted in ISPConfig and
All is now Great Again!!

Thanks be to the forums!! and of course the software developers!!!
