    I forced an update of cpanel to the Current build to try an fix some email problems we where having. However now BIND will not start :

    [root@server ~]# tail /var/log/messages
    Jan 26 14:45:08 server named[23654]: loading configuration from '/etc/named.conf'
    Jan 26 14:45:08 server named[23654]: listening on IPv4 interface lo, 127.0.0.1#53

    Jan 26 14:45:08 server named[23654]: exiting (due to assertion failure)
    Jan 26 14:45:08 server named: named startup failed
    [root@server ~]#
    Im not sure why this would be as I did not play with DNS at all. My host is saying they want to do a server restore but this seems like overkill
    I have tried removing bind with yum and rpm but it does not get removed
    Any help will be greatly appriciated

    Have you tried any of these fix scripts or replace your conf from a backup as a test? Of course create a current copy of your named.conf first

    /scripts/fixnamed

    /scripts/rebuildnamedconf

    You can try to completely remove bind (make sure you have a BACKUP of named.conf and /var/named folder ) with the use of:
    rpm -e bind --force

    * You have to be extremely cautious when you forcely remove packages.

    More info

    should have mentioned this before
    I tried
    fixednamed
    rebuildnamedconf
    fixeverything
    and many other cp scripts that I thought could work
    I then tried reinstalling bind
    yum remove says it has worked but the package is not removed:confused:

    I am busy downloading all the backup sites in preparation for a server restore
    Do you guys know of anyway to mass restore the sites? without haveing to do a cp restore on every one?

    Thanks for your help

    You might say it's in a "BIND".

    (sorry)
