I was looking for a solution to manage Bind9 DNS server through a web so I
can add/edit zone.
I thought PowerDNS/PowerAdmin would be a good solution for my requirements.
I successfully installed both PowerDNS/PowerAdmin and tested them was
working fine.
When I restart my box I found PowerDNS crash my system giving many errors
can't find mysqlserver.
Any suggestions for the requirement to manage Bind9 through the web, or the
PowerDNS problem.
Thanks and have a nice day.

Have you tried making sure that the MySQL daemon is started /BEFORE/ PowerDNS and Apache is started?



Thank you for your reply. I thought you put your hand in my exact problem.

When I start PowerDNS from command line using "/usr/local/etc/rc.d/pdns onestart" its running smooth. 

To make auto startup I just put this line pdns_enable="YES" to the end  of /etc/rc.conf.

Can you please highlight to me how and where to add the instruction for auto startup of PowerDNS to be sure it's starting after Mysql.

Thank, and have a nice day.
