    Hi folks,

    A few days ago I've an issue with a new domain, which is was on ISPConfig manager and site was not displaying, later I've check on named.conf and site was not listed and ask around and some one help me to add those records to my DNS and he told me named is not communicating with with ISPConf box. :eek: :eek:

    Now my question is:

    what I need to check to confirm that ISPConfig modify correctly system parameters, such as adding a new site.

    Thank you

    ISPConfig Version: 2.1.2
    Linux Distro: FC4

    Hi,

    You find the file genered by ispconf in this folder
    /var/lib/named/etc/bind

    The master file
    /root/ispconfig/isp/conf

    restart named and show syslog for error
    /etc/init.d/bind9 restart
    cat /var/log/syslog

    What's in your named.conf?
    What's the value of Zonefiles Dir in Management -> Server -> Settings -> DNS?
    Is SELinux disabled?

    Hi Falko, Thank you for your reply:

    In named.conf contains almost all my sites, except for last site that I've created.

    Zonefiles Dir.: /etc/bind

    I went over the server to see content of bind and I tried to listed and I can't find that file!!! should exist or is a hidden file?? :eek: :eek: :eek:

    SELinux is disable.

    Thank you

    Please do this:
    Code:
    yum install bind-chroot
    chmod 755 /var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/run/
    chmod 777 /var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
    cd /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    ln -s ../../ chroot
    chkconfig --levels 235 named on
    /etc/init.d/named start
    as shown on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_4_p3

    Afterwards, fill in /var/named/chroot/var/named as the Zonefiles Dir in ISPConfig.

    Thank you Falko,

    I've followed your instructions and I got:

    [[email protected] /]# yum install bind-chroot
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing package install arguments
    Nothing to do
    [[email protected] /]#

    Other things we're ok then I got:

    [[email protected] ~]# cd /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    [[email protected] named]# ln -s ../../ chroot
    ln: `chroot/..': cannot overwrite directory
    [[email protected] named]#

    other than that there is no problem also I've change path in ISPConfig.

    Thenk I went to check site and still is not showing up!!

    [[email protected] /]# dig universalcmd.com

    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.1 <<>> universalcmd.com
    ;; global options: printcmd
