    Good evening,

    It'll be 10 when I reinstall cpanel, but each time the DNS server does not work.
    I took my degree in http://www.buycpanel.com/ but he can not help me.


    Code:
    Restarting DNS Server
    
    Waiting for named to restart...............................................................finished.
    
    
    named has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "named is not running").
    

    Code:
    root@server [/scripts]# ./fixndc
    Named could not be restarted, any obvious config errors should show up below this line.
    The named configuration appears to have errors:
            /etc/named.conf:1: unknown option 'This'
    
    Running /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/rebuilddnsconfig to repair it..
    Named could not be restarted, any obvious config errors should show up below this line.
    WARNING: /etc/named.conf appears to contain errors which could not be corrected automatically!
    /etc/named.conf:1: unknown option 'This'
    Please correct these errors manually and rerun /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/fixrndc


    Code:
    root@mutu1 [/scripts]# nslookup ns1.domaine.com

    The error message indicates there is an issue in /etc/named.conf file:

    Please post the top line of /etc/named.conf file:

    Code:
    cat /etc/named.conf | sed -n '1p'
    Thanks!

    before


    Named.conf was cleared and we re-bind. And now we have
    The nslookup works locally but not outside
    And my registrar does not want to take my two dns, it takes the spread or there is a problem?

    Please open up a ticket using WHM > Support Center > Contact cPanel or using the link in my signature, since I'm uncertain why you would be receiving an error message about /etc/named.conf when it starts properly on line 1 with the information normally included there. Thanks!
