    Hi All,

    i have just setup ispconfig 3 and it's working great except for DNS.

    i am able to dig the localhost i.e.

    [[email protected] ~]# dig kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com

    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 <<>> kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com
    ;; global options: printcmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 47499
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 2, ADDITIONAL: 0

    ;kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com. IN A

    kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com. 86400 IN A

    kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com. 86400 IN NS ns1.kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com.
    kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com. 86400 IN NS ns2.kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com.

    when i dig from an external server t returns no records.

    ;kilimanjaro-summitexperiance.com. IN A

    i can resolv all external sites from the server for example google.

    the ns servers at the registry are set to.

    DNS Delegation details:
    Nameserver 1: ns1.kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com
    Nameserver IP 1:
    Nameserver 2: ns2.kilimanjaro-summitexperience.com
    Nameserver IP 2:

    and pointing to the correct IP's.

    am i missing something here?

    any help would be fantastic i've trolled the forums but i'm obviously missing something in my understanding of how ispconfig 3 works.

    I get much the same issue, and combined with an issue from yesterday, it just doesn't seem like this aspect of the system is working.

    If I get any info that will answer your question I'll forward it.

    I am actually researching if I can switch to named/BIND.

    By the way, when you are in the DNS management part of the web UI :)8080) and logged in as admin, is the system listing your DNS entries?

    Mine does not, and till mentioned trying to update, which I did, and so am trying to isolate if my system is the only one that is not listing, or if there are other systems with a similar condition.

    more soon...

    OK, I noticed a few things.

    1. my own issue was fixed by stopping, restarting and reloading mydns by using the command lines:

    service mydns start
    service mydns reload
    service mydns restart

    The reason zones were not showing up in the list is because mydns was likely not running after initial install of ISPconfig.

    2. your issue might be related, you might try out the stop/start/restart/reload commands.

    I however have a new issue, a newly created domain and website are not showing up even though dns is aimed right and dig commands are working.

    If I get any new info that might help your current issue I'll drop you a line.

    Select the IP address in the website settings instead of *. If the IP does not show up in the list, then add it under system > server IP.
