    Hi all,

    I looking for a way to backup my DNS zones. I just want to download them to be sure modified DNS zones will stay intact after I restore a backup.

    Thanks in advance!

    Root access? If not ask you provider to copy them over to your a folder in your account that is not web accessible. If you have root access just use CoreFTP and login with SSH and download them.

    Re: "Backup DNS zone files"

    Just an addition, the DNS zone files are placed in /var/named directory and its configuration file is placed in /etc with the name named.conf so you need to download the following:

    /var/named ;Directory containgin zone files
    /etc/named.conf ;Configuration file of Nameservice

    Thank you.
