    I was install Centos 5 And cpanel. But i have got a dns problem on this machine. Named is not working and broken. I cant add any nameserver or new domain or new zone via my WHM.

    I got that error when restarting the DNS Server.
    --------------
    Waiting for named to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.

    named status

    named has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "named is not running"). Apr 8 15:03:53 server465 named: none:0: open: /etc/named.conf: file not found
    ---------------

    What can i do?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Just for fun, to know, is bind installed? Issue this command in a shell:

    rpm -qa | grep bind

    I'm curious. Paste the output here.

    Regards,

    Got same error. Here's the output you were curious about:
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    root@mailserver [~]# rpm -qa | grep bind
    bind-libs-9.3.4-6.0.1.P1.el5_2
    bind-9.3.4-6.0.1.P1.el5_2
    bind-devel-9.3.4-6.0.1.P1.el5_2
    ypbind-1.19-8.el5
    bind-utils-9.3.4-6.0.1.P1.el5_2
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Now what? :)

    you need rebuild /etc/named.conf from WHM. or if you are on new server just create it manually.

    I am also having the same problem. The file /etc/named.conf does exist, but with root as owner/group. I tried to chown named:named /etc/named.conf, but it doesnt take any effect, so it remains as root/root. Any idea?

    Rebuilding namedconf is the solution but any ideas why this would be happening in the first place?



    Thank you
