Unhappy Back again, Please Help

Hallo. Sorry for not comming back I had loads of stuff to do and only got round to get on with my Linux server. I still have the same problem, Named does not start and the system just hangs. I tried removing ISPConfig and reinstalling it but n Joy. I tried removing Bind and readd it No Joy. So here is my Named.Config

Code:
options {
        pid-file "/var/named/chroot/var/run/named/named.pid";
        directory "/var/named/chroot/var/named";
        auth-nxdomain no;
        /*
         * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
         * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
         * directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
         * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
         * port by default.
         */
        // query-source address * port 53;
};
//
// a caching only nameserver config
//
zone "." {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";
};
zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "named.local";
};
zone "41.86.81.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "pri.41.86.81.in-addr.arpa";
};
zone "BlaBla-MySiteAddress.com" {
        type master;
        file "pri.BlaBla-MySiteAddress.com";
};
zone "BlaBla-MySiteAddress.com/SubSite/" {
        type master;
        file "pri.BlaBla-MySiteAddress.com/SubSite/";
};

//// MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ////
I do not have a SYSLog but my Message file has this:
Code:
Sep 16 21:58:46 webserv1 hcid[1411]: Can't open system message bus connection: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Connection refused
Sep 16 21:58:47 webserv1 hcid[1411]: Can't open system message bus connection: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Connection refused
Sep 16 22:02:49 webserv1 hpiod: ParDevice::nibble_read failed: Input/output error 
Sep 16 22:03:53 webserv1 avahi-daemon[1974]: Failed to read service directory.
This is the only lines that fail.

And when I tried Step 7 in the Perfect setup guid for Fedora 5 to install Bind9 i get:
Code:
[root@webserv1 named]# ln -s ../../ chroot
ln: creating symbolic link `chroot/..' to `../../': File exists
This happens even if i did remove/uninstall Bind from my server

Please help.

This means that the symbolic link is already existing, so this is fine.

Do you get error messages when you restart Bind? What's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?

BTW:
I have Changed my named.config by removing mySite and mySite-SubSite sections (2 bottom sections) and I got named restarted ok... Not sure why?!
Will try to reboot my server now and see if it boots ok.

ISPConfig is a webhosting controlpanel, you can not create email accounts without creating a website.

The steps are:

1) Create a client
2) Create a website
3) Add email users

Ok, this is the situation:
I have 1 webaddress assigned to my name: www.<MySite>.com this is registered at DYNDNS.com
I have a Windows server currently hosting my website and a Linux Fedora 5 server than i want to use as a Mail server and later maybe move my Windows hosted site to my Linux server as well.

1. Do I need to something with the DNS side on ISPConfig? (Remember i have only 1 Linux server and it only has 1 IP address)
2. Do i HAVE to host the Windows Hosted site on thelinux box to get mail to work.
3. My question is still HOW do i get the mail to work (I am trying to understand the ISPConfig documentation but i am strugeling.)

Thank you

1) no.
2) no.
3) Have you done the three steps I posted above? Just do it and you will see that it works.

Thanx for the answers.

I created the customer, and tried to add a site for this customer but is says:
Code:
 The name www.<MySite>.com is already in use by another site or domain.
What now?

This means that you have already created a site with the same domain. Domains are unique. If you deleted the old site, make sure you emptied the recycle bin too.

Cool

I got it working!!!!!!!!!!! Thanx guys!!!!
It does seem to take a long time to save the data and even allow UebiMiau! client to log on, could this be speeded up? and why is it so slow?

Now I would like to know how do i get my clients to connect to this mail server if they use a external mail client... lets say thunderbird or OutlookExperss or something like that??
