    Morning all.

    I have a VPS that has cPanel 11 on it.
    Its been a good few years since I set up a cPanel server but went thrugh all the steps to initially set up WHM, assigned 2 nameservers, added IP and then added A entry etc and then created a domain on there.

    Now, I can't get to the site and dnsreport says no nameservers are responding :s

    http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?%26domain%3Ddotcomhosts.com

    Any help appreciated - and I like the new version 11, a lot better than the older vesions!

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    Your DNS connection is being refused on:

    ns1.dotcomhosts.com [91.186.4.103]

    Have you got any firewalls installed?

    I did but closed that off so I could check, still the same result :(
    I started again (thanks to the rebuild in the VPS) and when I try to add the A record for the nameserver in WHM, I get the following error:

    "The zone for the root domain dotcomhosts.com is missing, or could not be read. The ip address will be read from the webserver configuration and a new zone will be created for this subdomain. Bind reconfiguring on uk using rndc Error reconfiguring bind on uk: rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused
    Created DNS entry for ns1.dotcomhosts.com" - same hapens for ns2 as well.

    Several hours later and I am losing hair now!!

    Hope that helps someone help me out :)

    Cheers

    No matter - all working now.

    Not sure what was wrong but in the end I renamed the named.conf that cPanel created and used a named.conf that just had the basics in there:

    key "rndc-key" {
    algorithm hmac-md5;
    secret "XmMrE4DSy/RkO0WTAp3OfA==";
    };

    controls {
    inet 127.0.0.1 port 953
    allow { 127.0.0.1; } keys { "rndc-key"; };
    };


    and it worked fine.

    Ah well - at least I got to know cPanel intimately again after all this time (and it made me love Directadmin even more!!!)

    Ry

    Wassup,

    For bind (named) never count on default confs and always verify permissions on files and owner and group!

    Respekt.
