You already created a domain (SOA Record) with the name...

    I am getting an error while trying to create a new master in the dns manager.
    "You already created a domain (SOA Record) with the name..."

    I goto search and look for masters and find the entry and try to delete it.

    I go back to the recycle bin and see "The recycle bin cannot be accessed because the system is currently being updated. Please try again in a few minutes."

    About a minute later I can enter it and it is empty, then I try to create a new master record and it says I have allready created a SOA record with that name.

    I have no Resellers, Clients, or sites added yet.

    Is there a way I can delete that information in BIND through ispconfig?

    I also got that one, but it turned out to be because I tried to create a domain for which my server is _not_ the master. Nothing like that for you?

    Not sure what you mean.

    I am using one domain name, and have the name servers set in godaddy to my ip addresses.

    when I type the above addresses into my browser they resolve as the test page for apache. when I type in the in it resolves to the parked page for godaddy.

    This is the same domain that I wanted to create the SOA for.

    I don't know if this helps:

    in /var/named/chroot/var/named
    there are 2 zone files
    localhost and localdomain and neither one references mydomain.tld

    I uninstalled and reinstalled ispconfig and was then able to set the records correctly.

    Then I installed UebiMiau Webmail and phpMyAdmin-2.9.1 and the BIND-server has been offline ever since.

    It was resolving nicely and I am unable to get it back up and running.

    I have done some googling and found someone with a similar problem and it had to do with a record in the recycle bin, I unfortunately, have nothing there.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    If I understand this correctly then godaddy has a SOA record for your domain?

    Godaddy did have the records, thats is where I bought my domain name.

    But I registered my nameservers and then changed them.
    Basically I followed:

    Now my BIND server is offline. I can't figure out how to get it restarted, the controls in Management>Server>Services doesn't do anything when I try to restart or just turn on the server.

    I hope that clarifies this situation, thanks in advance.

    Don't know fedora, but on Ubuntu named logs errors in /var/log/daemon. It had similar probles and it always boiled down to a typing error of myself. Named is very strict in it's syntax. Example: I removes the empty lines are the end: wrong, there need to be at least one empty line.

    Check your log files. I thing named is a little informative about which line it has problems with.

    I was of the understanding the ispconfig automated all of this?

    Will I hurt anything if I manually make changes or if I stop/start/restart my servers manually, as opposed to going through the ispconfig interface?

    I have no edited any configuration file manually so far. I am actually finding this more difficult than Webmin. But I see its usefulness for running a very very large web hosting company.

    Change, start, stop anything manually, but be aware that ISPConfig next time it comes around (when you use it to make a change) will overwrite whatever you have done in your config files (unless you change the templates, but that's another story). So your manual changes will disappear sometime in the future, possibly when you don't remember you have changed anything.

    ISPConfig is what is said in its name: ISP = Internet Service Provider, aka a webhosting company, either large or small. For your personal server, I think you're in better shape with webmin.

    Ya, I was just playing with it to see if I liked it or not. I am obviously not going to run a large hosting company any time soon, I liked the tutorial for the FC5 setup and thought I'd add ISPCONFIG to see how it was.

    The controls are intuitive and creating new resellers/clients/sites is pretty straightforward. I think tonight I'll go ahead and remove it if I cannot figure out what is conflicting with BIND in the meantime.
