BIND9 update killed it

I recently updated bind to whatever its latest version is. And now... it doesn't work.

I haven't been able to find any log files with information in them. It claims to be running when I do:

# /etc/init.d/bind9 status
bind9 is running.

But when I visit any websites hosted on the server, it tries to make me download the PHP file instead of executing this. Normally, I would suspect that this would be an Apache error but Apache seems to be fine. Additionally, Virtualmin (which I shamefully use) reports that bind isn't running.

I'm running BIND 9.6.1-P1, according to named -version. Also, running named-checkconf yields no errors.

I'm not even sure how to investigate this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can run
ps -ef|grep named
to see if named is indeed running.
Regarding the php problem, this is an apache/php misconfiguration problem and has nothing to do with bind.
