    Hi all,

    Running CentOS 4.3, bind-chroot (rpm) this info might help you.

    I think I've found an issue in /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/named.conf.master. Each time a change is made to DNS ISPConfig restarts BIND and copy that file (root/ispconfig/isp/conf/named.conf.master) to /etc/named.conf (simlink to /var/chroot/etc/named.conf), however there is a configuration mistake in named.conf.master, where is writen :
    pid-file "/var/named/chroot/var/run/named/";
    should be changed to :
    pid-file "/var/run/named/";
    because BIND is running in a chroot mode.
    you HAVE TO:
    cd /var/named/chroot/
    mkdir -p var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
    chmod 770 var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
    chown root.named var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
    or bind wil not work.

    Please review this and correct me if I'm wrong.

    Please configure the permissions of the bind directories as described in the perfect setup guide. Then make sure that the path for the bind config files is set correctly in ISPConfig under managament > server > settings.
