Hi there. I have a question I need answered so I can move forward with my project. I have an internal management server for my network, it runs Rancid, and DNS for itself. I have a hosts domain setup which works fine, does what I need it to do. The problem is admining the DNS easily. Only a token few here know enough about bind to add or change the records. I built a web based front end to add, remove or change a record and search the record. The problem I have is getting the front end to access R/RW the file without breaking or compromising the DNS server.
What do I need to do to setup permissions so the web front I built, which has its own authentication, to be able to read and write to the zone file?
