    hello, good morning

    following the the 'Perfect Multiserver Tutorial', step 6 'Installing the first Nameserver' using Debian 10.
    The ISPConfig autoinstaller throws a warning after step 'Configure DNS Server (y,n) [y]: <-- Hit Enter'.
    [WARN] autodetect for PowerDNS failed
    the install i continued with confirming 'y' for PowerDNS and 'y' for subsequent warnings
    Force configure PowerDNS (y,n) [n]: y
    [WARN] autodetect for BIND failed
    Force configure BIND (y,n) [n]: y
    [WARN] autodetect for MyDNS failed
    Force configure MyDNS (y,n) [n]: y
    Configuring PowerDNS
    Configuring BIND
    then a php warning is shown, followed by 'Configuring MyDNS'
    PHP Warning:  chgrp(): Unable to find gid for bind in /tmp/ispconfig3_install/install/lib/installer_base.lib.php on line 2159
    Configuring MyDNS
    after this section the auto-install continues as per tutorial with:
    The Web Server option has to be enabled when you want run a web server or when this node shall host the ISPConfig interface.
    Configure Web Server (y,n) [y]: n
    the warnings are an issue for the set-up or not, can someone please assist?

    ISPConfig is not using PowerDNS, it uses BIND. So the warning was perfectly OK, nothing to worry about and you should have not chosen yes there.

    This means you probably logged in as root in the wrong way. If you login on Debian 10 as other user than root, then you must use 'su -' to become root, if you would use just 'su' without the '-', then su loads the PATH variable in the wrong way. See chapter 6, it explicitly states that you must use 'su -' on Debian 10. That's why the installer was not able to detect services correctly.

    There you should have chosen 'n'

    For a DNS node, choose 'n' there, as described in the guide.

    ok, thanks for this!

    will do a clean re-install - how can i wipe the ns1 settings from the existing ISPConfig set-up ... delete ns1 records via sql, perhaps a guide exists?

    There is no need to reinstall. just disable symlinks to powerdns plugin in the folder /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-enabled/
