    Hi guys,
    I recently helped my friend set up cPanel on his CentOS 5 server, and will be eventually setting up a DNSOnly installation on another server. Whilst the actual installation went fine, BIND/named is non-functional, and is not returning a response to any DNS requests.

    It is definitely running:
    However, DNS lookups do not return anything:
    On the server:
    From my PC:
    Apart from the "sending notifies" messages, there are no BIND-related messages in /var/log/messages. No errors are encountered when I edit the DNS zones via WHM, and everything else seems to be working fine. BIND is not running in a chroot, as I have not got around to setting it up (cPanel is running inside a vserver, and I need to set up the chroot jail manually, because the vserver does not have permissions to run "mknod").

    Any ideas?
    Thanks :D
