    Exclamation Nameservers configuration, need some help!

    Hey there,
    Setting custom nameservers right now on a dedi server,
    and following this tutorial at same time:

    http://fdcservers.net/vbulletin/show...ht=nameservers

    Im just where I should check all the settings thru SSH,
    and I just found out that both these files are empty
    instead of how they should look:

    /etc/host.conf[b]
    /etc/host

    Is this normal, do I need to write on the file,
    or there some problem with BIND that canīt setup
    the files by itself?
    I have restart BIND several times and also perform a DNS cleanup
    but they keep empty.

    Thanks!

    The files you're looking for are:
    /etc/host.conf
    /etc/hosts
    (and neither of them should contain anything like [b] - that looks like corrupted formatting on the forum)

    You might want to consider employing a server admin to help you, both with the initial setup and ongoing management.

    Thanks for the help,
    Yes its was formatting error in the link,
    so Iīve check those files and they are correct.
    Anyway, thanks for the management tips, but I prefer to do it myself,
    be doing for the past 2 years, just never had to setup custom nameservers,
    since my main business is shoutcast hosting.

    Thanks again!
