    I am having a weird problem when I create new accounts.

    What is happening is that the accounts create all fine except that the DNS zone files are written to /var/named/doman.db, but DNS is running chrooted in /var/named/chroot and expecting to see the zonefiles in /var/named/chroot/var/named/

    All accounts I created up until a week ago were all correct, creating the zone file in /var/named/chroot/var/named, and creating a symlink in /var/named pointing to the domain.

    I had a problem with squirrelmail not working, and had to do an EDGE build to get it to work, and then of course, changed back to a STABLE build.

    running WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-S83 on CentOS 3.4 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    What I am looking for is to identify the scripts that create the zone files so I can see if they are corrupt or missing (as a result of my fix of the squirrelmail problems).

    As you can imagine, this is a problem, as if a customer adds a sub-domain or a new parked domain, then it requires manual intervention on the server before it will work.

    Go on, have a guess
    I'd suggest simply disabling the chroot environment as the usual remedy for the problem. IIRC I saw an enhancement in the EDGE changelog that mentioned support for chroot named.

    That would explain it - when I ran EDGE to fix the squirrelmail problem, it also set up a chroot environment -and when I reverted to stable, squirrelmail problem was fixed but other problems were created.

    I guess that means either I run EDGE or remove the chroot environment -
