    Hey there guys,

    Having some issues with my centos (perfect server) ispconfig 2 server.

    Recently bind has not been updating but I haven't had time to investigate too much other than searching around on the forums.

    This morning after the server was restarted both pop3 and bind are offline. Restarting didnt fix it.

    Directory in server config>settings
    named.conf: /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf

    Contents of which:

    options {
    pid-file "/var/named/chroot/var/run/named/named.pid";
    directory "/var/named/chroot/var/named";
    auth-nxdomain no;
    /*
    * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
    * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
    * directive below. Previous versions of BIND always asked
    * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
    * port by default.
    */
    // query-source address * port 53;
    };

    //
    // a caching only nameserver config
    //
    zone "." {
    type hint;
    file "named.root";
    };

    zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
    type master;
    file "named.local";
    };

    zone "226.122.203.in-addr.arpa" {
    type master;
    file "pri.226.122.203.in-addr.arpa";
    };


    zone "maverickrenegades.com" {
    type master;
    file "pri.maverickrenegades.com";
    };
    zone "mythicalsystems.com" {
    type master;
    file "pri.mythicalsystems.com";
    };
    zone "inspite.com.au" {
    type master;
    file "pri.inspite.com.au";
    };
    zone "spookyink.net" {
    type master;
    file "pri.spookyink.net";
    };



    //// MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ////



    Not sure which logs to include. Please let me know what i can supply for assistance...

    I am contemplating re-install and upgrade to ispconfig3 but i just dont have the time atm.

    Please restart bind and then look into the syslog or messages log if there are any bind related errors in these files.

    Starting named: [FAILED]

    Checked Messages in /etc/log/
    Did not have anything in there..last log entry 3 days ago. FAIL

    Can you please tell me where I can find the log for bind as I cant find one in the same directory?

    Well I think I fixed it... Reapplied this from perfect server config.

    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
    touch /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf
    chkconfig --levels 235 named on
    /etc/init.d/named start

    And yes its back up! Now to test to see if DNS will update.

    I have no idea what happened to cause the error.
