Default Centos 5.5 install /etc/named.conf.local

Hi, I've installed chroot DNS where named.conf.local is at /var/named/chroot/etc . However, ISPConfig3 is actually editting /etc/named.conf.local. Tried using symbolic links but named complained and wouldn't start so copied /etc/named.conf.local to /var/named/chroot/etc . How can I update ISPConfig to use the chroot path?

Thanks, John.

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

Another issue in the named.conf I discovered is this one:

I have installed ISPconfig in a KVM virtual machine (the Hetzner way, natted).
I followed the Perfect Centos 5.5 setup and installed bind.

In the /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf I had to change the line
listen-on port 53 {; };

into this one:
listen-on port 53 { 10.x.x.x; };
The address above is the private virtual lan address of the server.

I also had to comment out the line:
allow-query { localhost; };

I preferred to switch the last line "recursion yes" in recursion no" as well.

Hoping this could be helpful
