Try these steps...

If you get a message saying something similar to

rndc: connection refused

Login as root and run "/scripts/fixndc"

If you see something similar to

"Bind reloading on server using rndc zone: [] Error reloading
bind on server: rndc: 'reload' failed: not found
Created DNS entry for"

Run "/scripts/upcp" to update to the latest version of C-Panel
