    I am in the management screen as the admin, and when I create a DNS zone through the wizard, it does not show up.

    Is there a way to verify if this is working properly by command line?

    I am running ubuntu 9.04 and ispconfig 3 on a fresh install.

    It does not show up where? In the list of dns zones in ispconfig?


    dig @localhost yourdomain.com

    Hi till,

    thanks for the quick response, it's not displaying in the actual ISPconfig web admin :)8080) DNS screen.

    I did notice that when I try to add the same data, an error does pop up:

    "There is already a record for this zone".

    my question has more to do with why I am not seeing the zones getting listed in the web UI.

    I like using dig -t ns, etc. for actual network commands, so I guess what I am observing might just be a UI issue.

    when I add other types of data, like clients, etc., those display fine, so it seems this issue is restricted to the actual DNS screen in the web UI.

    I QA'd everything else and it's working fine. Could it be that a slight update of ISPconfig3 might do the trick, or since you have been on the forum a while, what would you say might be my best bet for troubleshooting this?

    To be exact, I am trying to about 5 zones, for various domains I wish to move off some CP servers I run.

    I am still getting used to the concept of mysql-based DNS after years and years of using BIND/named commands with tail -f /var/log/messages, etc.

    Any help is much appreciated, I guess if I could tell what logging mechanism to use to see if DNS changes are actually working (tailing whatever log you recommend would be fine with me) I wouldn't care so much about the web UI not displaying stuff.

    I like the tool so far, I used ISPconfig2 a while back and it was great...

    Hi till,

    I updated, and it looks like the update went fine.

    Just FYI, these errors appear at the end, I am sure you know about them but in case it's something you might want to know about, here it is, feel free to disregard:


    Update finished.
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/update_from_tgz.sh: line 8: f: command not found
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/update_from_tgz.sh: line 9: syntax error near unexpected token `then'
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/update_from_tgz.sh: line 9: `then'

    Done from ISPconfig3 on Ubuntu 9.04.


    The issue with it not displaying the domains is still present, so I'll go ahead of use mysql to view the data in the db to deal with seeing the zone data/records for now until I get to the bottom of why the UI isn't displaying them.

    Fixed: DNS Record Creation

    I got the records to display by issuing a

    service mydns start
    service mydns reload
    service mydns restart

    set of commands.

    This allowed for proper management.
