I am very new to bind. I got it set up and "working" in terms of installing and configuration for the over all bind to work. The problem started when I made a zone file for the domain name aevtech.com
This is the error I get when I start bind:
Error in named configuration:
dns_rdata_fromtext: aevtech.com.db:15: near 'aevtech.com.': not a valid number
zone aevtech.com/IN: loading from master file aevtech.com.db failed: not a valid number
zone aevtech.com/IN: not loaded due to errors.

I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out what to fix and I just can't figure it out for the life of me. I googled and read and looked but still the same error. Here is the zone file for aevtech.com
[root@server ~]# cat /var/named/aevtech.com.db

The upsetting part is I bet it is something very simple that I'm sure I'm missing that if RIGHT in front of my face but that's what comes with the learning process! Thank you in advanced for any and all help!
