DNS Stopped Working`


I did an apt-get for Apache and PHP, since a program I'm running needed it for GD 2.0. (Gotta love dependencies).

Anyhow, for whatever reason (though I can't fathom why they'd be related) it managed to kill my DNS service.

Here's what I know:

Server is it's own DNS, bind, mail and web server. Standalone install, Redhat 9.

If I do a service named start - It says [ OK ], but a quick PS says it's not running.

A tail -f on messages tells me:

: Loading configuration: file not found
: exiting (due to fatal error)

etc/named.conf is indeed there and configured (I'm pretty sure) correctly.

named -c /etc/named.conf, same error (file not found)

From the GUI, the status of named is "rndc: connect failed: connection refused"

Any insight appreciated.

If it helps: a chmod 777 on rndc.key gives me a new error:

Still loading config not found, but it says "cannot configure root hints" from file "named.ca".

I don't recall ever working with this or configuring it before the server died.

Progress:

Found This Thread. Downloaded that file, renamed it named.ca, put it in /var/named. Named service is running, but still not resolving.

dig or host just hang there.

Well, I figured it out (for anyone finding this post in a search).

Everything was configured correctly - except resolve.conf. Adding in the subdomains and loopback IP fixed it.
