    hello all,

    I installed ISPConfig 3.0.3 by following the tutorial "The Perfect Server - Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) With MyDNS & Courier [ISPConfig 3]" and now wanted to change the MyDNS for BIND. The question is: after removing the MyDNS and install BIND, you need to reinstall or perform some additional configuration in ISPConfig?

    If you dont have any dns zone created yet, then it is no probem to switch to bind
    by just removing mydns, then install bind and afterwards update ispconfig and select to reconfigure services during update.

    Thank you for the reply Till.

    If I delete the dns zone that I created in MyDNS, can perform the procedure without problems?

    Hi, happy new year :)

    so it is possible

    there is a tutorial that explain how to replace MyDNS by Bind for debian, please?

    I looked everywhere on the net but I could not find anything

    My site takes too long to load, and I read somewhere that the problem is the secondary DNS server of my provider OVH, which are incompatible with MyDNS

    thank you

    hi 007007.

    Never seen tutorial for this, but here I made the change and no problems. I use Debian, and just followed the installation procedure as the link found in the documentation of ISPConfig 3 for Debian and the time to install myDNS I installed Bind.

    To update I deleted domains zones and run update ISPConfig to set Bind DNS server.

    if you have any questions post here I will try to help you.

    Hi Sergio, thank you very much for your help ;)

    Can you pass me the link of perfect installation please ?

    If I understand, I need to do:

    apt-get purge mydns
    update-rc.d remove mydns
    apt-get install bind9

    it's correct? any other configuration ? that's what I understand from reading some discussions

    thank you again
