Webmin Start Bind DNS At Boot

This was so simple but it killed Techieshelp.com for hours. After its migration to VPS all was working well then one or two changes where made which need a quick reboot. I though nothing of then I noted in my stats that hardly anyone used the site for hours, not good!

The issue was that BIND DNS will not start itself automatically after it is installed and configured. You have to start it manually in WEBmin, however we can start it at boot…

start bind DNS automatically

If we want BIND DNS to start automatically at boot we need to run the following command. First SSH onto your server. Then run the below.

chkconfig --level 35 named on

This command sets BIND DNS – service 35 to star at boot.
