    Hi,

    recently set up a new server running Fedora and Cpanel/WHM verson 11.x

    I got my first domains setup and running. I added a couple of domains through the transfer tool from my old server (great tool by the way).

    Now Named won't run. I rolled the configuration back to a previous version and it still won't start.

    Here is the error I get when I try to restart it:

    Error in named configuration:
    /etc/named.rfc1912.zones:13: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.rfc1912.zones:19: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.rfc1912.zones:25: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.rfc1912.zones:31: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.rfc1912.zones:37: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:45: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:52: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:57: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:62: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:67: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:72: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:77: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:82: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:87: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:92: unknown option 'zone'
    /etc/named.conf:97: '}' expected near end of file


    I've tried the "fix" scripts but that doesn't resolve the problem. For now only my main domain works none of the other domains will work. Any suggestions?

    I recommend using a supported distribution of Linux such as CentOS or RHEL:

    http://www.cpanel.net/products/cpwhm/cpanel11/sys_requirements.htm

    I have no ETA on FC9 support. Keep in mind, Fedora Core is commonly used as a development platform rather than as a server platform, so its product lifecycles are very swift - not lending itself to the stability typically desired for a server hosting environment.

    David,

    thanks for the info - unfortunately I've already had the server setup and have domains and files all moved in. We discovered that there was an error in the named.conf file - missing a }; Once that was corrected it started working properly.
