Plesk 10.2 crashing almost hourly

    Bind under Plesk 10.2 crashing almost hourly

    Hello,

    We're running Plesk 10.2 with the latest patches on CentOS 5.5 32-bit.

    It seems the Plesk control panel is randomly crashing on us and taking out Bind (named) with it or vise-versa.

    It appears Bind is crashing almost hourly which makes Plesk and our website inaccessible. I completed the 10.2 upgrade 2-3 weeks ago so if it's related it sure took it's sweet time.

    This is what I've found in our Plesk logs:

    I checked out those rndc errors and they are a result of Bind crashing. The rndc keys match in the config files.

    I found a thread with similar errors on the support forums but the KB articles linked didn't apply to Plesk 10.2 and I checked our secure.log and we're not being attacked.

    I'd love to show you some logs from named but it doesn't appear that information is logged by default and when I attempt to configure it log files are not created. There is nothing in /var/log/messages that applies.

    Any ideas?

    Temporary solution. Add the following cronjob.

    Thanks. I did find that article and we're already running DenyHosts. I don't think SSH brute-force attempts are causing our problem.

    The named service (Bind) just seems to crash. When it crashes our DNS goes out and we can't get to Plesk.

    I'm sorry I confused the issue with my original post because I hadn't completely figured out what was going on.

    How should I go about troubleshooting BIND? I can't find any logs for it or any hints as to why it's just crashing after running for about 30 minutes.

    Log file of BIND is /var/log/messages

    Thanks. I did mention I looked in there and couldn't find anything.

    I found out how to enable logging for BIND. As root:

    This will log to a default location of "/var/named/run-root/var/named.run".

    Of course now that I've figured this out our DNS server isn't crashing anymore.
