    Hi!

    Fedora 8
    ISPconfig 2.2.21

    I know this is not updated version of ISPconfig.
    Googling with no luck.

    ---
    Today, upon adding new site, ISPconfig fails to start named daemon.

    I started to tracing down the problem.

    It seems that path for named zone file, for some stranege reason, changed its value in table isp_server (db_ispconfig database).

    I first took a look in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/ispconfig.log, tried to manually start named.
    As it hangs, I looked under /var/named/chroot/var/named/ directory and noticed there is zone file missing.
    If I create zone file manually, everything is normal and named starts.
    I tried to change permissinons under /var/named, but with same problem.
    After that I started some debugging until I solved problem.

    Entry in table isp_server looked like this:
    atrribute: server_bind_zonefile_dir
    value: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/multidoc/edit

    and output

    Code:
    # ls -l /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/multidoc/edit
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 admispconfig admispconfig  2769 2008-03-20 14:52 delete.php

    The permissions of the bind directory are wrong. Please redo the bind configuration steps from the perfect setup guide and then correct the bind path in ISPConfig under administration > server > settings

    Hi Till!

    Thanks for your answer!

    I already solved problem before my first posting.

    For me, it was strange that path in DB changed for no reason. I rearly login as admin user into ISPconfig admin panel.


    It was first thing I thought about ;)
    But then problem persisted, so I folowed code in writeconfig.php, looked into DB and saw wrong path.

    Sugesstion for isp_server table in ISPconfig DB,
    Instead of:
    -----------------------------------------
    | setting 1 | set 2 | set 3 | ..... | set n |
    -----------------------------------------
    | value 1 | val 2 | val 3 | ..... | val n |
    -----------------------------------------

    Make it:
    ---------------------
    | setting 1 | value 1 |
    ---------------------
    | setting 2 | value 2 |
    ---------------------
    | setting 3 | value 3 |
    ---------------------
    ...
    ...
    ---------------------
    | setting n | value n |
    ---------------------

    It would be easier to maintain table. (Don't know how ISP3 table looks like.)

    Thats normal in ISPConfig. It happens when the ISPConfig interface is not able anymore to access the bind directories.

    The problem is the fedora bind package. When you install a updated bind rpm in fedora or centos, the rpm messes up the permissions. Other distributions, even rpm based like suse are able to handle bind updates without changing the permissions.
