Hi,

Today all sites on my server went down.

When checked, found DNS server down. I restarted, but the sites do not come online, i checked /etc/named.conf and found all zone file reference missing.

On /var/named i found all files are moved to

/var/named/chroot/var/named/

This happend today.

At last i fixed by readding zone files one by one.

Even the location of named.conf changed. /etc/named.conf is not working, instead i have to use /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf

This is new change in Cpanel ?

Thanks,

Yujin

It seems you are running named in chrooted environment. This is for securing bind.

edit /etc/sysconfig/named and comment

USE_JAIL=yes

or ROOTDIR=/var/named/chroot

restart namede deamon

If you don't want to use chrooted environment please uninstall the package bind-chroot

rpm -e bind-chroot


restart the named deamon

/etc/init.d/named restart


Hope this helps!
