Hi, I used the The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.5 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3] using Bind and Chroot. I got it all to install fine by changing the x64 to i386 where necessary. BUT I am getting this error - Error in named configuration: /etc/named.conf.local:1: zone 'xyz.com': already exists previous definition: /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local:1 ------------------------ I bought a domain. xyz.com from enom. I added a name server at the registry to my IP address of 188.8.131.52.1 (not real but looks better than x.x.x!) on my machine in my basement behind a firewall I have Bind, Apache, the lot on 192.168.2.9. I have got Ispconfig working but have made a mess of something because i want to use xyz.com as both a ns1 on my local machine and also to use it as a www but the ns1.xyz.com does not dig or resolve . Later I will add wxyz.com to this when I get it working. My trouble is that the ns1 is not working. when I run ...named restart I get this error - Now those files are sylinked as part of chroot. When I remove the DNS Zone under DNS I get this: Now here are my settings under dns-dns zone after I add a dns dzone using the DEFAULT wizard. (dont know how to embed screenshots or I would have done that. Now as this is a template it does create these when you go in and look. and yes it does put the "." after the .com So even if I delete it and created it with 184.108.40.206 (with the correct IP) it still gives the error. I am sure if I can sort this out then I can get it all to work Thanks for helping in advance.
