    Ok, now start BIND again. Does it work then?

    What's in your /etc/resolv.conf?

    /etc/resolv.conf
    Code:
    nameserver 209.51.143.76
    nameserver 66.150.227.15
    
    Should those be my IPs? I didn't set that, those must have been there by default from my host.

    Please try this instead:
    Code:
    nameserver 145.253.2.75
    nameserver 193.174.32.18

    Done, restarted server. Still didn't fix it, server still isn't picking up the domains.

    Did you specify nameservers for your domains at your domain registrar? Because there don't seem to be any nameservers for appalhost.info:

    Code:
    mh1:~# dig ns appalhost.info
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> ns appalhost.info
    ;; global options:  printcmd

    whois.net shows my nameservers.

    The nameservers are set correctly at the registrar. At the registrar I created two subdomains from appalhost.info, ns1 and ns2, and set the A record on each to my ips.

    It worked before with ISPConfig and worked with Plesk.

    I guess you're missing the glue record: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dns#Circular_dependencies_and_glue_records

    Well, I switched my xenotype.net domain to another registrar, Namecheap, and registered nameservers with it to my two ips.

    I still cant get it working. The records are correct but the DNS server for some reason isnt responding.

    http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/traversal.ch?domain=xenotype.net&type=A

    Heres the one for appalhost.info:
    http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/traversal.ch?domain=appalhost.info&type=A

    The records are correct but the server wont respond. All services are up and the firewall is open.

    It doesnt make any sense.

    I don't get an answer for appalhost.info with dig, but for xenotype.net:

    Code:
    mh1:~# dig any xenotype.net
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> any xenotype.net
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:

    So the glue records for xenotype.net exist (but apparently not for appalhost.info).

    But ns1.xenotype.net doesn't respond:

    Code:
    mh1:~# dig @ns1.xenotype.net ns1.xenotype.net
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> @ns1.xenotype.net ns1.xenotype.net
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
    mh1:~#
    Maybe a firewall problem?

    We already looked at that. The firewall isnt blocking it.

    Actually I realized Ive had my firewall OPEN this entire time. I fixed it, but all of the necesary ports are open input and output, including port 53.

    Should I just take this problem to my host?

    Are 207.210.77.119 and 65.254.53.154 your IP addresses? And is BIND really running?

    You assigned 127.0.0.1 to two interfaces. Maybe that's a problem?
     
  16. RingofFire

    RingofFire New Member

    And how do I unassign that to one ip?

    Hi ringofire

    snip ~

    RX packets:562962838380565 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:651771061892378 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

    ~

    512 terabyte transmitted and 80 tb recd on your loopback interface.....

    Assigning the same ip address to 2 different interfaces is going to cause a loop. Why do you have venet0 set to 127.0.0.1. Did your isp/hoster set this up? Perhaps an email to them would help.

    This is no solution but domething you may want to look at.

    Alright, I talked to my host, and he found the problem in 5 min.

    ISPConfig didnt write the zones to the conf file. Nor did it configure named to listen on internet devices or to allow outside requests.

    When I add a new domain in ISPconfig it still doesnt write it to the conf file.

    And, now that I have the domains working by manually adding the dns entries, when I try to add users, it doesnt write the users to the proftpd conf file!

    Any reason why ispconfig wont write any of this stuff?

    Any errors in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/ispconfig.log? What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /root/ispconfig
    ?

    Additionally to falkos request, did you configure bind exactly as described in the perfect setup for your linux distribution?
