help setting up dns for a new website
I used to use LxAdmin to setup new websites before it was taken donw. I am now using Webamin instead for the first time.
I am now having trouble setting up the dns records correctly for the website egarcenter.com
Here is what I have so far:
egarcenter.com. IN SOA ns1.egarcenter.com. info.egarcenter.com. (
egarcenter.com. IN A 18.104.22.168
www.egarcenter.com. IN A 22.214.171.124
mail.egarcenter.com. IN A 126.96.36.199
ftp.egarcenter.com. IN A 188.8.131.52
ns1.egarcenter.com. IN A 184.108.40.206
ns2.egarcenter.com. IN A 220.127.116.11
egarcenter.com. IN NS ns1.egarcenter.com.
egarcenter.com. IN NS ns2.egarcenter.com.
mail.egarcenter.com. IN MX 10 mail.egarcenter.com.
www.egarcenter.com. IN CNAME egarcenter.com.
unfortunately, I alway get "dns error" when trying to access www.egarcenter.com or egarcenter.com
any idea what I am doing wrong ?
Have you registered your nameservers with your registrar as child nameservers?
Are there any errors in the log when starting named? Is named running? Are you able to get a response from it?
BIND recommends using CNAME's instead of A records for everything. My guess is there is probably a syntax error. Check the logs and tell us what you're seeing when it starts.

Your bind seems to be responding to DNS requests, but there is no information for your domain:
In Webmin, after make a change or addition to a DNS zone, make sure to click the "Apply Configuration" link (top-right I think). Or restart the bind service
dig @18.104.22.168 egarcenter.com
; <<>> DiG 9.3.4-P1 <<>> @22.214.171.124 egarcenter.com

The "named" service is running and the Nameservers are registered with the registrar.
I did click the "Apply Configuration" link and restarted bind several times with no luck.
When clicking "Check BIND config", I got the following:
The following errors were found in the BIND configuration file /etc/named.conf or referenced zone files ..
* named-checkconf: illegal option -- z
* usage: named-checkconf [-v] [-t directory] [named.conf]
The bind version I am using is 9.2.4 (it came with Webmin)
Do I need to upgrade Bind to the latest version ? if so, how ?
I tried to run this command ps -Af | grep 'named' and got the following:
[ [email protected],cin ~]# ps -Af | grep 'named'
root 7926 5214 0 11:01 pts/0 00:00:00 grep named
named 18356 1 0 10:22 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/named -u named
Any idea what that means ?
