ISPConfig 3 - Fedora 14 - problems with DNS not working


Hi guys,

I have Fedora 14 running ISPConfig 3 and everything else runs smoothly except bind... When I first installed the system named would start and work. However about 3 days after I had the server online I received error messages in ISPConfig about the DNS-server not working.

I have previously set up named in a chroot environment but ISPConfig removed that in the installation. I haven't looked through exactly what they have done but obviously there are many ways in which to do the same thing.

If someone could please bring my attention to where I should start looking, that would be very much appreciated thank you.

steve

Hi,

Well, start looking at the name server logs.

Regards

Hi,

You should take a look at bind (named) logs to find out what's wrong, or post the relevant parts here in order to get help. I'm not using ISPConfig, but I guess they are located under /var/log as usual (var/log/messages, /var/log/syslog etc)

Regards

Its fixed now...

In the tutorial it mentions installing bind and bind-utils but doesn't mention to remove the bind-chroot... This is the problem, as soon as I removed it named would start very happily, obviously the file location was wrong and unfortunately the logs don't mention that its being chrooted...

Problem solved, thanks
