    I'm currently using BIND, but thinking about moving to PowerDNS. What files should I back up manually before doing so... you know, just in case?

    Hello,

    You could backup the /etc/named.conf file and the entire /var/named directory, but note that I've not seen any reports of problems with the conversion to PowerDNS via "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Nameserver Selection"

    Thank you.

    Thanks, Michael! You're right, it moved fast and without a hitch :D

    I do still see that "ncsd" is running, and taking up a significant amount of virtual memory (1315m on a 4G server). Is that normal?

    Hello,

    I'm happy to see the conversion completed successfully. I see your other thread is open to address the NCSD resource usage:

    Thank you.
