I am having a problem with installing bind9 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I have installed a Plesk 11 server but DNS service is not running.
root@cp11:~# apt-get install bind Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package bind is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source However the following packages replace it: bind9 dnsutils dnsutils:i386 bind9:i386 manpages E: Package 'bind' has no installation candidate root@cp11:~# root@cp11:~# /etc/init.d/bind9 start * Starting domain name service... bind9 [fail] root@cp11:~# /etc/init.d/bind9 restart * Stopping domain name service... bind9 [ OK ] * Starting domain name service... bind9 [fail]
When I try to check the log file:
root@cp11:~# tail -f /var/log/messages tail: cannot open `/var/log/messages' for reading: No such file or directory
I checked in /etc and there is a bind directory
root@cp11:/etc/bind# ls bind.keys db.127 db.empty db.root named.conf.default-zones named.conf.options rndc.key db.0 db.255 db.local named.conf named.conf.local rndc.conf zones.rfc1918
When I try to uninstall bind9 it also removes the Plesk control panel.
So I updated and the upgraded the packages and I see bind error:
root@cp11:~# apt-get upgrade Processing triggers for libc-bin ... ldconfig deferred processing now taking place Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ... update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-23-generic Processing triggers for resolvconf ...
