Bind won't stop trying to start

Hey all. I'm a newbie to cPanel, but I installed it and set up everything earlier today. Everything seems to be going fine except I keep getting email alerts that bind is having problems starting.

I have separate nameservers so I don't need (or want) bind to start. I've unticked it in the Service Manager, and rebooted several times, but I keep getting emails about it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regardless of where your Nameservers are, you do want BIND to be running -- else Apache don't work. ;)

Ok, so I want to make sure named is running then, eh?

*Edit*

I tried to restart it and got this:

Attempting to restart bind
Waiting for bind to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.

rndc: connect failed: connection refused
bind status


bind started ok

I then checked the service status and bind was not running.

I'm still kinda new to this so I apologize if this is a simple problem.

Running the above (yes, the second one twice) might solve the problem for you.
