Built an Ubuntu 8.04LTS ISPConfig server per Falko's instructions and two weeks ago, all was working fine. Lately, I have been working my way through getting my server recognized by my ISP nameservers. Because I need to run one nameserver, I followed "How To Run Your Own Name Server With ISPConfig and providerdomain.de" how to. Struggled with the German graphics (on page 2), but I think I got through it with the help of "How To Run Your Own Servers With ISPConfig And GoDaddy" how to. And now I have discovered that my bind9 is not running. "Services" shows it is "offline" as does natstat -tap shows not listening to ports 53 or 953. The syslogd captures the following: Oct 7 10:11:32 web02 named: starting BIND 9.4.2-P1 -u bind -t /var/lib/named Oct 7 10:11:32 web02 named: found 1 CPU, using 1 worker thread Oct 7 10:11:32 web02 named: loading configuration from '/etc/bind/named.conf' Oct 7 10:11:32 web02 named: none:0: open: /etc/bind/named.conf: permission denied Oct 7 10:11:32 web02 named: loading configuration: permission denied Oct 7 10:11:32 web02 named: exiting (due to fatal error) Oct 7 10:11:32 web02 kernel: [950173.520670] audit(1223392292.562:23): type=1503 operation="inode_permission" requested_mask="r::" denied_mask="r::" name="/var/lib/named/etc/bind/named.conf" pid=22031 profile="/usr/sbin/named" namespace="default" I checked the permissions of /var/lib/named/etc/bind/named.conf and it is bind:bind. Did something update bind recently that I overlooked when upgrading? I need help. Please.
