lame dns servers etc and general dns issues


Hi there,
I'm very new to Linux and I'm trying to setup my own little server here, although I've run into a few issues, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'll try to give as many details as possible, I've only been using linux for three days now, so bear with me

I went to (dnsreport.com) and this is what I get for my dns report:

(dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=phil-keaggy.com)

I'm confused about the lame nameservers, and how it it can't read my SOA record.

My soa record for the domain: phil-keaggy.com is located at: /var/lib/named/master and is named phil-keaggy.com here is what it says:

$TTL 2D
@ IN SOA ns1.phil-keaggy.com webmaster.mediareaction.com. (
2004053111 ; serial
1H ; refresh
1H ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

(phil-keaggy.com) IN NS ns1.phil-keaggy.com
(phil-keaggy.com) IN NS ns2.phil-keaggy.com
(phil-keaggy.com) IN A 24.80.196.184
(phil-keaggy.com) IN CNAME (phil-keaggy.com)
ftp.phil-keaggy.com IN CNAME (phil-keaggy.com)
(phil-keaggy.com) IN MX 10 (phil-keaggy.com)

I used Yast to generate this file, I think it's okay, but I guess it's not getting read.

I'm running Apache 1.3.31

When I go to my nameservers in my browser they work, but I guess they are lame :P

As you can imagine I'm slightly lost, if anyone could help me out that would be great!, thanks

PS - Ignore the brackets around my domains, it wouldn't let me post a roper URL.

Re: lame dns servers etc and general dns issues

Hiya,

You need to add entries for "ns1.phil-keaggy.com" and "ns2.phil-keaggy.com". To explain:

in the config, you've got specified that ns1.phil-keaggy.com and ns2.phil-keaggy.com are your name servers for your domain by saying:

Quote:
(phil-keaggy.com) IN NS ns1.phil-keaggy.com
(phil-keaggy.com) IN NS ns2.phil-keaggy.com
Now, you've got to specify what the IP addresses are for these servers. In your case, I assume you've only got the one server and so both name servers will point to the same IP address.

Try using the following as your config file:

Quote:
$TTL 2D
@ IN SOA ns1.phil-keaggy.com webmaster.mediareaction.com. (
2004053111 ; serial
1H ; refresh
1H ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

@ IN NS ns1.phil-keaggy.com.
@ IN NS ns2.phil-keaggy.com.
@ IN A 24.80.196.184
@ IN MX 10 phil-keaggy.com.
ns1 IN A 24.80.196.184
ns2 IN A 24.80.196.184
ftp IN CNAME phil-keaggy.com.
Make sure you don't miss the full stops/periods from the end of a couple of those addresses (or copy + paste the above ). If there's no full stop at the end, BIND (your DNS server) will automatically add on ".phil-keaggy.com." to the end of it (which is why the ones on the left are shortened).

You can use the "host" and "dig" programs in the console to find out more about the set up of your domains. Type:

host ftp.phil-keaggy.com

to get the IP address, or

dig phil-keaggy.com

to get lots of info about it. Hope this helps.

Hey thanks alot I thought I was a lost cause there Everything is cool now, excpet one small thing but I don't think it will take long to figure it out.

Here is my zone file now:

$TTL 2D
@ IN SOA ns1.phil-keaggy.com. webmaster.mediareaction.com. (
2004053111 ; serial
1H ; refresh
1H ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

@ IN NS ns1.phil-keaggy.com.
@ IN NS ns2.phil-keaggy.com.
@ IN A 24.80.196.184
@ IN MX 10 phil-keaggy.com.
ns1 IN A 24.80.196.184
ns2 IN A 24.80.196.184
www IN CNAME phil-keaggy.com.
ftp IN CNAME phil-keaggy.com.

My only issue is now, phil-keaggy.com will come up, but www.phil-keaggy.com will not.

Do I need to restart apache? I restarted bind but it still won't come up.

I added www IN CNAME phil-keaggy.com. to my named file but I guess it didn't work.

Thanks again for the help

update: I can't fnd the page if I try ftp.phil-keaggy.com or ftp://phil-keaggy.com either but I do get info if I use dig @ftp.phil-keaggy.com

Although if I use dig @www.phil-keaggy.com it can't find anything.

update again: I added phil-keaggy.com. IN A www.phil-keaggy.com. and that seemed to fix it

help again :P

Alright I had another issue, but basically my question is, does this zone file look okay:

$TTL 2D
@ IN SOA ns1.phil-keaggy.com. webmaster.mediareaction.com. (
2004053111 ; serial
1H ; refresh
1H ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

@ IN NS ns1.phil-keaggy.com.
@ IN NS ns2.phil-keaggy.com.
@ IN A 24.80.196.184
@ IN MX 10 phil-keaggy.com.
ns1 IN A 24.80.196.184
ns2 IN A 24.80.196.184
www IN CNAME phil-keaggy.com.
ftp IN CNAME phil-keaggy.com.

will this give me http://phil-keaggy.com and www.phil-keaggy.com?

thanks
