Default Cannot configure DNS... Incorrect permissions???

Hey guys,

I was in my ISPConfig manager and I went to the DNS manager to create a new MX record and when I clicked the SAVE button it gave me popup that stated "You do not have permission to view this..." or something like that and booted me out, and now I can't even view my dns records or setting from the manager... What permissions do you think I need to change on my machine to get this going again? Seems really strange that it did this, I was logged in as admin and everything was working yesterday. Thanks in advance!

-Brad

Did you do anything on the server before it stopped working?

No, I did nothing... The CentOS was just installed and the server is brand new... Like I said, it was working the previous day and I did nothing to break it... Thsi sucks because I cannot get email to work, I need to make an MX record and I don't want to do it manually

It is a problem with the database and not any file permissions, even if you dont believe the poeple who have written the software

It is really not easy to say what causes this problem. The error message is from ispconfig, so there must be either some database records missing in the permission tables (e.g. in dns_dep or dns_nodes) or the permission table is unreadable at all due to a mysql failure or there the admin user record in sys_user table has been modified or a similar problem.

Okay, you have my attention now So, what do I need to do to correct this issue? As I said, the database repair function did nothing (or at least seemed to do nothing as it didn't fix the problem). I am really trying to like this software... I have been using DirectAdmin on all eight of my servers and I'm ready for a change. Thanks!
