FreeBSD (latest?)

I had a number of problems that may be the same that you are having. I posted the results of my FreeBSD + CPanel process here: http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=41588 . In that post, I list the steps that I have taken to overcome all the CPanel install and operational issues that I encountered, including BIND.

Please let me know if any information there is helpful, I try to keep it up to date and edit the original post with new info as I get it. So, if you find something that should be on that list, let me know!

Anyway, good luck.

Did you try to start the bind from shell

try this command from the shell

/usr/bin/named -u named -c /etc/namedb/named.conf

Please let me know if there are errors when you run this command. Then check the status.


There may be slight changes in this commands depending on your server. The user may be bind and the location of named.conf might be named.conf

Hi all,

First of all thank you for your suggesions, I have Free BSD 5.3-RELEASE server. I would like to know if anybody is having a good tutorials for Free BSD, I'm a RedHat guy and i use to know very little about Free BSD. The errors i was getting like "Fatal No RNDC and no KEY found", which in turn means named is not present. While i have confirmed this from DC they said everything is OK. And after some more discussion with DC guys i got the issue resolved from Them. And i have made this post in here cause they were instructed me so :)


Thankyou

"Fatal No RNDC and no KEY found"
Someone plz correct me if I am wrong, but I think named was actually present, but that the RNDC entries that are supposed to be in /etc/namedb/named.conf (including the key entry) were not present or incorrect, thus resulting in named aborting the startup. Does your last post mean that your problem is fixed? If so, perhaps you could post what fixed it so that other users having similar problems can reference it.

As far as good FBSD tutorials with CPanel, I haven't found any either (just bits and pieces here and there), which is why I made that post I linked to above, and I am trying to update it as appropriate as I go. If you find a good source of info, I would be VERY pleased if you would pm me a link! I can use all the help I can get.

Thanks, and good luck.
