Thats a known problem in the fedora named packages. They change the permissions of the chrooted named directories and make them inaccessible for ispconfig when you install a named update. To fix this, run the chown and chmod commands from the named installation part of the perfect server installation guide after you installed a named update.

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