Default ispconfig not writing out bind files


My ISPconfig have mysteriously stop writing out bind files (named.conf and pri. zone files). But I can see the domain names in the "ISP Manager". So something is wrong.

But I did change this on Sat. I followed this link to edit /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/named.conf.master to include

allow-recursion {localhost;};

in the option part.

options {
        pid-file "/var/run/bind/run/named.pid";
        directory "{BINDDIR}";
        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;

         allow-recursion {


// a caching only nameserver config
zone "." {
        type hint;
        file "db.root";

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "db.local";

<!-- BEGIN DYNAMIC BLOCK: named_reverse -->
zone "{ZONE}.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "pri.{ZONE}.in-addr.arpa";
<!-- END DYNAMIC BLOCK: named_reverse -->

<!-- BEGIN DYNAMIC BLOCK: named -->
zone "{DOMAIN}" {
        type master;
        file "pri.{DOMAIN}";
<!-- END DYNAMIC BLOCK: named -->

<!-- BEGIN DYNAMIC BLOCK: named_slave -->
zone "{DOMAIN}" {
        type slave;
        file "sec.{DOMAIN}";
        masters { {MASTERS}; };
<!-- END DYNAMIC BLOCK: named_slave -->


Can this trip ISPConfig? Is there anyway to fix this? Or manually call a php file to generate the pri. and named.conf files that have not been created?

Many thanks

hmmm ... very strange ... after applying this hot fix. All the bind files are generated! Everything seems to be working again ...

Haven't got a clue on what's happening ...

Edit: I should also mention that I'm using the XML version (ISPConfig-2.3.0-dev.tar.gz)
