    After I login to WHM window opens saying HOSTNAME A Entry Missing
    ''The server was unable to lookup an an A entry for its hostname (host.servermedia.biz). This is generally because the entry was never added. However this could also be the result of your nameserver(s) being down. If you would like to attempt to automaticlly add the entry''
    CLICK HERE

    After I Click Here there is : Adding an A entry for your hostname
    All parameters OK. Found everything
    ADD THE ENTRY.
    After I click that it says: Zone mydomain.biz does not exist, a new zone for host.mydomain.biz will be created.
    Sorry, a DNS entry for host.mydomain.biz already exists, please delete it first


    I delete it but after I login to WHM here we go from the start. What is it about. What is that Host name and must it have own IP.

    Please help me

    here u go.. it seems to work

    do this:

    pico /etc/named.conf

    Near the top of that file there are two entries that say rndc-key or rndckey

    then do:
    pico /etc/rndc.conf
    and remove the - from rndc-conf

    find the one with a dash and remove the dash so it's all one word then....

    /scripts/fixndc

    then:
    If you are using Fedora you should also pico /etc/sysconfig/named and comment out the 'ROOTDIR=' (put a # in front of it)

    This will fix the RNDC Errors you have been having along with that annoying popup...

    Your RNDC Bind stuff will function as it should function


    do the scripts/fixndc twice...
