    Hi, I've done the perfect server setup on Centos 5.5 i386. I know that the howto is for x86_64 archs but as I said my Centos is i386 and I just want to try. Of course, I changed amd64 packages to i386 packages.

    Now, I have ispconfig3 installed and works fine, I can send mails, create and use ftp accounts..etc. But when I try to add a dns zone, ispconfig doesn't write neither on /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf nor on /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local and commands like nslookup, ping, etc. don't recognize names. In /etc/resolv.conf, I have
    Code:
    nameserver 127.0.0.1
    Hope you can help me! Thanks! ;)

    Please try
    Code:
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    nameserver 8.8.4.4
    instead in your resolv.conf.

    Ok, but google won't recognize my local zones... I supose I had to tell system to ask to my own dns server to ask about hostnames i've created. This is all on local network, i don't have any public domain or static ip, i'm just trying.. I should have said that, my fault..

    Ok, then use
    Code:
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    nameserver 127.0.0.1
    so that your system can look up real domains and your local domains.

    Do you see any errors in ISPConfig's Monitoring module?

    Thanks, but I think the problem is not the resolv.conf. The problem is that ISPConfig doesn't write changes in DNS zones on named.conf. The control panel creates the hosts file (pri.*) but it doesn't add new zones to named.conf. I've copied exactly your named.conf (the howto's).

    Everything is ok in the monitoring module. I see MyDNS server instead of Bind, is this ok?

    Edit: Yeah! problem solved! ISPConfig saves DNS zones on /var/named/chroot/var/named/named.local, so I added the line:
    Code:
    include "/var/named/chroot/var/named/named.local";
    to named.conf, restarted the server and now it works! Thank you falko for your help, now ispconfig seems to be better :D
