Is there anyway to import zone files in WHM? I'm moving a domain to Cpanel system but it has hundreds of zone files and I would rather not have to enter them by hand. Is there any way to batch upload zone files?

You can copy all of the *.db files (using FTP or SCP) from /var/named on the source server to /var/named on the destination server, then run the following command on the destination server:

Code:
# /scripts/rebuilddnsconfig
This command checks all zone files with the .db extension in /var/named and adds entries for them to /etc/named.conf, if entries are not already present in the file. You will then be able to edit or remove the DNS zones from the WebHost Manager. This procedure should do what you want.
