Bind-Server doesn't start Centos 5.3

    I've installed ISPConfig 2.2.31 in a Centos 5.3 server.
    The installation works fine and start the panel ok.
    But when I configure the server and configure one test site the BIND-Server doesn't work any more.
    In the panel only says OFFLINE.
    In the server console I have this:

    [root@ns2 ~]# service named start
    Starting named:
    Error in named configuration:
    /etc/named.conf:3: change directory to '/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/multidoc/edit' failed: file not found

    /etc/named.conf:3: parsing failed

    As I don't know which is the pointing file or the misconfiguration I request your help.

    Thank you.

    I've have done all the installation as is described in the post but bind doesn't work.
    I'm using bind-9.3.4 but I suppose that is the same 9.3.3

    Please tell me if there may be another thing to do.

    Did you set the correct path to the bind directory in ispconfig under management > server > settings and clicked on save?

    I didn't touch the default value.
    Please tell me what must say o which is the correct path.

    If I uninstall the panel and make a new installation this problem can be solved or I will have another problem or a bigger one???
    Or for a new installation I must have a clean system installation.

    What's the path to the bind directory in ispconfig under management > server > settings right now?

    Did you change the permissions as shown in the "Perfect Server" setup for CentOS 5.2?

    chmod 755 /var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/run/
    chmod 777 /var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
    cd /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    ln -s ../../ chroot
    cp /usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.4/sample/var/named/named.local /var/named/chroot/var/named/named.local
    cp /usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.4/sample/var/named/named.root /var/named/chroot/var/named/named.root
    touch /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf
    chkconfig --levels 235 named on
    /etc/init.d/named start

    Thanks Falco, at last it works.
    But I've must change myself the line in named.conf because the panel doesn't.
    Anyway, it is working now, thank you.
