Default Can't get MyDNS installation to work

Hi there,

I have just installed ISPConfig 3 on SUSE 11.2 64-bit,following the how-to at http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...64-ispconfig-3.

There is a few files that is not immediately found, but I found a newer version with webpin.

But I couldn't get the rpm for mysql-mydns. The command wget http://mydns.bboy.net/download/mydns...1.0-1.i386.rpm just freezes. When i gave the URL to WS-FTP Pro it told me: Could not resolve the address ... But much to my surprise, when I copy/pasted the URL to Internet Download Manager (Windows - yak!) - it gave me the file straight away ! I put the file in the /tmp folder via a samba share, and tryed to install it, but it fails "Unknown service mydns, scriptlet failed...". And sure enough, when I look at the monitor the DNS is not running.

If I repeat the installation command rpm -ivh --force mydns-mysql-1.1.0-1.i386.rpm it seems to work. No error messages, but in the control panel DNS is still not running.

I have tried to reboot the machine, I have even tried to start the server manualy with /etc/init.d/mydns start. It returns: /etc/init.d/mydns start
Starting mydns mydns[11198]: mydns 1.1.0 started Sun Jun 13 13:11:14 2010 (listening on 4 addresses).

I am relatively new to Linux, and I simply can't get this to work. Can anybody help ?

Default I think it works now - error in configuration file

I just found this:

and applied this section:

Fix Error report on web Interface MyDNSConfig when you login
vi /etc/mydns.conf

And edit line:
55: use-rr-active = yes # To fix bug 295 where active or inactive status is ignored.
Need the space between Yes and #


then I did: /etc/init.d/mydns restart

and all lights are green...

But I still wonder why I cant wget from bboyz ?

If a packge is not available anymore, the easiest way is to use the openSuSE build service to find it:


For example the mydns-ng rpm's with mysql support:

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
