    I updated the scripts and I still have errors.

    This is what happens to me, I try to add a new account and I get this error:

    So I goto EDIT DNS Zones, and there is nothing there!

    So I goto DNS Clean up and I get this error:

    I am running the server on Fedora Core 2, WHM 10.6.0 cPanel 10.6.0-C66
    I have BFP and APF running - although they wouldnt have an influence...

    How can I fix this issue??

    Cheers!

    Go on, have a guess
    Try running named-checkconf manually and see what errors you get:

    named-checkconf

    You can also try restarting named and tail /var/log/messages at the same time and watch for errors. There's clearly a config error in your /etc/named.conf file somewhere.

    No, there's no misconfiguration.. this is a BUG! Run the latest update and add an account in WHM.. Then delete DNS zone for that account and what happens? The whole account disappears! This is totally useless now if you want to cluster servers and have cPanel on them... PLEASE fix this.

    I was able to resolve it one of our servers by updating it to Edge.

    If you don't want to go edge make sure you update your scripts
    by running /scripts/upcp you can also do /scripts/upcp --force

    For us this didn't work until the latest build, although we still have errors showing with wwwacct...

    Looks like there is another error:

    Code:
    root@server [~]# named-checkconf
    /etc/rndc.key:2: expected string near ';'
    root@server [~]# service named restart
    Stopping named: rndc: error: /etc/rndc.key:2: expected string near ';'
    rndc: could not load rndc configuration
                                                               [  OK  ]
    Starting named:                                            [  OK  ]
    root@server [~]#

    this is the contents of /etc/rndc.key

    Code:
    key "" {
            algorithm ;
            secret "";
    };
    That doesnt look right...
    How can I rebuild this file?

    with this??
    rndc-confgen

    Thnx for the reply.
    I tried:

    ndc status

    That didn't work, it failed with the error:
    Code:
    root@server [~]# ndc status
    ndc: error: /etc/rndc.key:2: expected string near ';'
    ndc: could not load rndc configuration
