    I have just insalled a fresh bsd system.

    I have then installed the latest version of plesk
    7.5.4

    Everything went sweet, install did not fail.

    It appears that bind is not being installed properly.

    Trying to create named run-root directory... done
    Trying to untar named run-root directory structure... usage: mknod name [b | c] major minor [owner:group]
    usage: mknod name [b | c] major minor [owner:group]
    chown: root: Invalid argument
    done


    Also when running /usr/local/psa/rc.d/psa restart the named/bind service is not restarting , it doesnt even appear in the list.

    Anyone else had something similar happen?

    you may need to add the following to /etc/rc.conf:

    named_enable="YES"
    named_chrootdir="/usr/local/psa/named/run-root"

    and then copy the rndc.conf and named.conf into the namedb subdirectort and symlink them back to the parent so that plesk can do its stuff.

    after doing that and rebooting, it seems to be looking in /etc/namedb/ for the configuration files.

    Should this be the case?

    yes.

    the script /etc/rc.d/named makes /etc/namedb a symbolic link to /usr/local/psa/named/run-root/

    if i have named_enable="YES"

    more than one instance of bind trys to load ( not good )

    If i dont have that line in the rc.conf

    nothing loads

    hmmmm


    I shouldnt have to do this anyways ?

    psa scripts should be running correctly ?

    Are you saying you were running freebsd 5.4 ?

    Im running fresh install freebsd 5.4 + 7.5.4 plesk

    You got around it by doing a fresh install of freebsd 5.3 ?

    Yeah I was running 5.4, I did a fresh install of 5.3, and then I fuond that link that claims to fix issues on 5.4.

    However you wont be able to auto-update on 5.4 anyway.

    I have played around with this.

    It does not play nice.

    I noticed other things not starting properly, and not behaving how they should.

    well it looked too good to be true but it was worth a go imo.

    It does all just work on 5.3 though.
