Here are the specific's as I see them. PSA for some reason on FREEBSD 5.4 writes to /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/named.conf while the actual named.conf that is in use by named is /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/namedb/named.conf ... I have tried alot of different ways to solve/work around this issue, It would seem that a simple symlink from /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/namedb/named.conf to /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/named.conf would solve this issue, but when plesk writes a new domain to /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/named.conf the symlink is overwritten by the actual file, therefore the rndc reload doesnt load the ..../etc/named.conf just written by psa it loads the ...../etc/namedb/named.conf that was already in use by named. In addition I have also tried linking the other way from ..../etc/named.conf to ...../etc/namedb/named.conf but in this case named will not start, named in a chroot dir will not start using a symlink as specified in /etc/rc.d/named. If we simply start named using /usr/sbin/named -c /etc/named.conf -t /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/ all is fine accept the fact that the plesk panel doesnt know that named is running. So you dont have the ability to stop/start/restart from plesk panel. So we let plesk start named itself which uses /etc/rc.d/named which in turn starts named using /usr/sbin/named -t /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/ therefore its using the namedb/named.conf The best way to fix this issue would simply be to tell psa to write to /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/namedb/named.conf and stop writing to /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/named.conf or to tell psa to start and stop named with -c /etc/named.conf option instead of using the default /etc/rc.d/named script which assumes named.conf is in /etc/namedb -someone please suggest how to do this or tell me another fix, please. Im now at the point that i have just cp /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/etc/named.conf /usr/lcoal/psa/named/run-root/etc/namedb/named.conf whenever a domain is added and rndc reload.
