    I followed this howto on my test server, and it worked flawlessly.

    However, cpanel is not on my test box. ;)

    Does anyone know how to modify that howto to work with cpanel? I'm not sure what cpanel will do if i change the location of the named.conf files..... :P

    Any comments? I'll try to get a trial version of cpanel on my test server to test this out I think.....

    It _should_ work....however changing the location of the files probably isn't going to go over well with cPanel. You will either have to modify the cpanel scripts (pain in the ass) or make symlinks.

    You can't really make symlinks..... that would allow bind to break out of its chroot if it even worked.... :P

    I know the implications of symlinks into a chroot'd env; however that is the only other solution other than writing your own DNS scripts to interface with cPanel.
