    Hello Everybody,

    we have an external DNS-Server and dont know for sure if it is better to turn the named service in plesk 7.5 reloaded off or not!
    Can there be DNS conflicts if we leave the service running?

    On the other hand if we turn off named the dns resolving for the webalitzer does not work anymore.

    Have You any ideas about this topic!

    In the control panel, go to "Server" -> "DNS", click the icon to disable the service. Then enter the external nameservers where it says "Add a DNS record"

    Hm, i tested it but still there are only IP's in the webstatistics.

    As i have read in the readme file there has to be created a database "dns_cache.db" by the webalizer. I havent found such a db on my system so i think i have to find out why it is not automatically created by plesk.

    Must i create it manually or is something misconfigured in my system???

    Also i have got the hint from sw-soft support to entry the external nameserver in the /etc/resolve.conf but they have been there all the time. So no solution from them.
