    I have a serious problems with Plesk 7.5.4 on Fedore Core 3. Plesk was installed on a clean FC3 server with auto install script.

    Please advice with the following problems:

    1. During installation Plesk couldn't start named
    2. From web interface shows the following error:

    ERROR
    Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by dnsmng: dnsmng: Service named failed to start
    0: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/server/restart_services.php:28 psaerror(string "Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by dnsmng: dnsmng: Service named failed to start")

    From /var/log/messages:

    Have you checked to see if the named.pid is actually in /var/run/named/ ?

    I would think it would be at:

    /var/named/run-root/var/run/named/named.pid

    Since the log shows it trying to start with these parameters:
    which is the path Plesk has used for quite some time.

    Also check the ownership uid/gid, should be named/named on all those dirs & files

    The error about no entropy source is no big deal.

    I had the exact same thing on a box last night. My problem was in the network settings in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0. The upgrade did some wierd things to that file. Once I fixed them, and restarted named all was well.

    I had the same problem happen to me the other night. Fixed the problem by reinstalling the bind packages. Works like a charm now.

    Hi all,
    I'm having the exact same issue as above and wonder if someone could walk me through fixing it.

    I did an up2date -u followed by an autoupdate pf plask from 7.5.3 to 7.5.4

    I didn't realize that named wasn't starting until hours later so I don't know what broke it...but this is what I get in my log.

    Feb 16 08:02:46 www named[1281]: starting BIND 9.2.4 -u named -c /etc/named.conf -u named -t /var/named/run-root

    Feb 16 08:02:46 www named[1281]: command channel listening on 127.0.0.1#953
    Feb 16 08:02:46 www named[1281]: couldn't open pid file '/var/run/named.pid': Permission denied
    Feb 16 08:02:46 www named[1281]: exiting (due to early fatal error)
    Feb 16 08:02:46 www named: named startup failed

    I've been working on this for about 30 hours so at some point I think I've tried everything. I'm pretty sure that premissions and symlinks are all good.

    I've tried removing the bind-libs with rpm -e and then using up2date to reinstall them.

    This didn't help.

    I also checked out my ifcfg-eth0 script and it looks ok.

    Any ideas?

    Was reinstalling bind through up2date the right thing to do? Or does plesk of it's own bind packages...if so where to I get them and how to I go about installing them. sorry if this isn't the right info you need...just let me know...I've been at this for 30 hours...so i'm a bit dinghy...:0

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I found a solution

    I had this problem after upgrading from 7.5.1 to 7.5.2. As the log message suggests it turned out to be file permissions. This fixed it:

    chown -R named:named /var/named/run-root/var
