Default Can't change DNS options: "Your changes cannot be saved...item updated" For a day

Hi All,

I'm trying setup my own nameservers.

So far I've added all the domains and IPs to the ISPconfig control panel.

Now, I'm trying to edit the nameserver section under the DNS manager.

When I try to change a nameserver, however, I get this error:

"Your changes cannot be saved because this item is currently being updated"


I saw this error elsewhere on the board, and it was suggested that I wait a few minutes.

So I did........but now 1.5 days later, I still get this message! What's going on???

Thanks for your help........

Code:
ls -la /root/ispconfig
?

Default No luck, I still get the same error message

Hi Till,

Thanks for your reply...

I ran the commands you suggested, and also double checked by logging into my server with an SSH FTP connection, and the .ispconfig_lock file was gone...

But, when I returned to the DNS manager and tried to update the nameservers, the same error "the item is updating please try again later" appeared!

Code:
[root@xxxxxxxx ~]# rm -f /root/ispconf/.ispconfig_lock
[root@xxxxxxxx ~]# /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
Shutting down ISPConfig system...
/root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl stop: httpd stopped
ISPConfig system stopped!
Starting ISPConfig system...
/root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl startssl: httpd started
ISPConfig system is now up and running!
Any other thoughts? Thanks!

please run:

rm -f /root/ispconf/.ispconfig_lock
/root/ispconfig/php/php -q /root/ispconfig/scripts/writeconf.php

do you get a segfault when you run the second command?

Please try this hotfix:

http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3695

It will work with the latest ISPConfig too.

Unhappy Still Not Working!



Hi Till, Falko,

Thanks for your tips, but it is not working!

First, I ran the hotfix and downgraded to PHP 5_0_4 :
From: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3695

Quote:
1) Changes in the ISPConfig interface where not written to system config files.

2) Running the command:

/root/ispconfig/php/php -q /root/ispconfig/scripts/writeconf.php

as root user results in a segfault.

Installation instructions:
------------------------------------------------------------

Login on the shell as root user and execute these commands:


Code:
wget http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/c...p_5_0_4.tar.gz
tar xvfz compile_php_5_0_4.tar.gz
cd compile_php_5_0_4
./compile
The compile script stops ISPConfig, compiles php 5.0.4 as replacement for PHP 5.1.2 and starts ISPConfig again.
Then, I ran the command above again, to double check that the Segmentation Fault was fixed:
Code:
/root/ispconfig/php/php -q /root/ispconfig/scripts/writeconf.php
... and I received the following error:
Code:
[root@XXXXXX /]# /root/ispconfig/php/php -q /root/ispconfig/scripts/writeconf.php
start
Segmentation fault
...The Segmentation Fault is not fixed!

I wasn't sure if this would affect my original problem of changing DNS settings, so I went to this thread and followed the instructions:

http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...d_zonefile_dir

Quote:
...OK fixed.

I noticed in the server settings section the zone path dir was somehow set to /etc/bind which doesn't exist. That explains the missing zone files.

I set it to /var/named/chroot/var/named/ and saved it then made a change to the DNS and it recorded the entry.. yippie

server_bind_zonefile_dir in the config DB now shows /var/named/chroot/var/named/ and works fine now
And I attempted to change the settings in the DNS manager, but the new path would not save! I tried deleting the path /etc/bind and pasting the above path in its place, but ISPconfig would not save the new setting!

What's going on???? I really need to get my server up and running!!!
