We don't need bind - is it safe to delete?

    Hi -

    We have dedicated namservers and don't want to run bind on our web servers at all. Is it safe to uninstall it?

    I'm worried about the dependency shown below.

    rpm -e bind-9.3.3-10.el5
    error: Failed dependencies:
    bind = 30:9.3.3-10.el5 is needed by (installed) bind-chroot-9.3.3-10.el5.i386
    ** bind >= 9.2.1 is needed by (installed) psa-8.4.0-cos5.build84080425.19.i586

    Thanks,
    Beth

    it looks like plesk requires you to have bind.

    That's what I was thinking. I'm new to Plesk, so wanted to be sure. Thanks!

    No worries!
    its always better to ask and find out, then to try and find out the hard way!

    I dont use Bind or the entire Email system in Plesk but I have to have it cause Plesk requires it :s

    You could just turn it off too. Personally I recommend keeping it, for no other reason than speeding up DNS lookups. Its a useful way to improve performance for things like spamassassin.
