step 4: configure bind

First of all you need to find your named.conf (the bind configuration file)

There is tool called "locate" on your system that is useful to find files, but every time your add or delete a file, you need to update "locate"'s files database, to do so type:

# updatedb

now use the following command to find the named.conf file:

# locate named.conf

step 3: install bind (DNS software) and enable SELinux

I always like to install bind first, because this allows me to initialize the DNS transfer of my domain(s) name(s) which takes time, after the setup of bind and while waiting for the DNS transfer to occur, i have time to install and configure other things like the server software (apache / nginx) and the database (mysql / mongo db).

check if bind is installed

First check if bind (Berkeley Internet Name Domain is a domain name service software) is not already installed, to get a list of all the installed packages type:

  • First
  • Previous
  • 1
  • Next
  • Last
