Chroot installation deleted named.conf? Help needed


I am new to Linux and I badly need help please.

I am running Centos 5 and was trying to configure bind V 9.3 and managed to get it configured correctly but when I installed chroot to secure the environment, the files /etc/named.conf and /etc/rndc.key went missing.

Please help me save hours of work spent configuring named.conf which went missing.

How do I get back named.conf, I tried to uninstall chroot but that was no help.

Thanks.

You can always use "locate" to try to find files. The command "updatedb" can be used to update the "locate" database.

Code:
updatedb
locate named.conf
Enjoy!

Note that when you have chrooted Bind, all files are looked for in a location relative to the chroot base directory (rather than /), so any file that is accessed after the chroot is in place should not be in the original location.
