    Hi Guys

    I have a ISPconfig3 server using Version: 3.0.4.6 running on cent os with Nginx , dovecot etc.

    the hosted websites for .com sites work fine , network solutions host the dns for these sites and points directly to our external ip address so it all works great.

    the hosted .ca sites are held with tucows hosting but point to our dns on our ispconfig 3 server and it cannot resolve the ip address from this , I have used the dns wizard to configure the records for these domains but we simply cannot get these sites to work .

    where do we start ?

    The log you posted is from apache, so not dns related.

    According to your first post, you have a dns problem. Please follow the dns fix instructions from the sticky post and post the named errors from the syslog file.

    As per the first post it's not using apache , it's using nginx ..

    dig @localhost horseshoetax.ca gives this output ...


    ; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.2 <<>> @localhost horseshoetax.ca
    ; (1 server found)
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    /var/log/syslog

    Check the other logs, such as /var/log/messages.

    Does

    Code:
    dig @localhost yourdomain.com
    work?

    dig @localhost yourdomain.com

    gives the following msg :-

    ; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.2 <<>> @localhost horseshoetax.ca
    ; (1 server found)
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
    [root@neptune log]#


    the /var/log/messages just has a bunch of ftp messages , nothing else .

    Is named running? What are the outputs of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    and
    Code:
    netstat -udp
    ?

    Are there any named errors in your logs?

    named appears to not be running - it does not appear on the netstat -tap list and there are no named errors .

    how do i configure it to start automatically in ispconfig3 ?
