    Question Bind fails very often

    We have faced to the huge problem with BIND. It is going to be down very often.

    I'm receiving this message from cpanel every 1 hour:
    bind failed @ Tue Apr 19 10:07:01 2005. A restart was attempted automagicly.

    Server configuration:
    RH 3
    Latest Cpanel release

    Please help.

    Thank you!

    Sounds like cron.hourly is trying to do something with Bind that's causing a restart.

    You may want to consider switching to djbdns. It's lightweight, fast, more secure, and restarts itself automatically thanks to daemontools that runs alongside it.

    Donboy, thank you for your response! I will check cron.

    Is it possible to swith for djbdns on cpanel servers?

    Check the /var/log/messages log file during the time of BIND down and check for any zone related errors..

    Doubt it. Depends on how "married" to cpanel you are. djbdns is probably not supported by cpanel, but i could be wrong. The good news is, djbdns is pretty self-sufficient. You won't need to mess with it too much after you get it running. Only you'll need to add new domains later using the command line.
