    I was being lazy, and went into WHM to modify some DNS information for a domain...

    once I edited the information the way I wanted...

    it completly empied the db file and left the base domain information...

    it removed almost everything else...

    thanks :)

    I manually recreated everything, and then did a manual update... so its working... this is more or less an FYI

    bump... this is what I consider to be a serious problem...

    it does not matter what DNS entry you modify...

    I replicated it on another server as well...

    WHM 8.8.0 cPanel 8.8.0-R73
    RedHat 9 - WHM X v2.1.2

    Anyone got a resolution from this?
    As it stands the 'Edit a DNS Zone' option in WHM now completely obliterates any zone edited. When making changes and clicking 'Save' you are presented with one of the following:

    404 Page not found - so dns zone does not get altered
    a blank screen - dns zone does not get altered
    zone file modified - dns zone is obliterated and left with base info

    This is the same on 5 servers we have running cpanel. As it stands now the edit dns zone feature is totally useless and everything has to be done via the named db file. That's fine until you are in a situation where you need to edit multiple files quickly.
    I have seen many threads here asking about this subject and no answers. It appears to be a large bug - is anyone interested?
