    Hi @all

    Where are the DNS Databases on the server (Path)?

    Thanks for a answer.

    Regards

    The DNS is not actually a database if you want to get technical ....

    All of the DNS files for each of the domains on your server
    are usually located in the /var/named folder on your server.

    If I had a domain named "mydomain.com" hosted on the server
    then the DNS file for that domain would be:

    /var/named/mydomain.com.db

    If you make any changes to any DNS files, you will need to restart the
    DNS server process before those changes will take effect.

    RESTART: /etc/rc.d/init.d/named restart

    (Or you can just restart "named" from your WHM menu)
