The server was unable to lookup an an A entry for its hostname (ns1.virtuahost.net). This is generally because the entry was never added. However this could also be the result of your nameserver(s) being down. If you would like to attempt to automaticlly add the entry,

i get this error...what is the problem.....and also i cant see any webpages ive added http://www.virtuahost.net/ what is the problem, everything is updated.

You need to add the A record for the hostname to the dns zone. You can do this in whm. You can also manually edit the dns zone and add it there too.

here

do this:

pico /etc/named.conf

Near the top of that file there are two entries that say rndc-key or rndckey

then do:
pico /etc/rndc.conf
and remove the - from rndc-conf

find the one with a dash and remove the dash so it's all one word then....

/scripts/fixndc

then:
If you are using Fedora you should also pico /etc/sysconfig/named and comment out the 'ROOTDIR=' (put a # in front of it)

This will fix the RNDC Errors you have been having along with that annoying popup...

Your RNDC Bind stuff will function as it should function


do the scripts/fixndc twice...
