    On a new CPanel install on RH7.2 a file is created in var/named which looks like this after editing the zone file of any domain..

    domain.com.db.test

    And this shows up in the WHM list.. apart from being untidy.. is there any harm in removing these... and/or how can we prevent them from being created if unnecessary??

    Cheers..

    I'm getting the same thing on one of my 7.2 servers. Do me a favor. Restart bind and see if named is running or not.

    domain.com.db.tmp

    Hi,
    I found this among the list of db's in WHM. Why is this caused .
    Is it ok, removing this, and is it related to the domain.com.db.test one.

    Before saving the changes to the db record, Cpanel creates a temporary file as .test

    Once the changes are saved into the db record the .test are supposedly removed, but sometimes they are left out. There is no harm in deleting these files. They are just temp files

    Regards.
