compile and install from source
Sun Mar 29 23:35:09 UTC 2015
Downloaded and compiled bind-9.9.7 (FreeBSD 8.4-RELEASE) and it built fine (./configure && make && make install).
If I try to start named (service named start), it starts this version instead of the version in /usr/local/sbin
I found this in /etc/defaults/rc,conf:
named_enable="NO" # Run named, the DNS server (or NO).
named_program="/usr/sbin/named" # Path to named, if you want a different one.
named_conf="/etc/namedb/named.conf" # Path to the configuration file
#named_flags="" # Use this for flags OTHER than -u and -c
named_uid="bind" # User to run named as
named_chrootdir="/var/named" # Chroot directory (or "" not to auto-chroot it)
named_chroot_autoupdate="YES" # Automatically install/update chrooted
# components of named. See /etc/rc.d/named.
named_symlink_enable="YES" # Symlink the chrooted pid file
named_wait="NO" # Wait for working name service before exiting
named_wait_host="localhost" # Hostname to check if named_wait is enabled
named_auto_forward="NO" # Set up forwarders from /etc/resolv.conf
named_auto_forward_only="NO" # Do "forward only" instead of "forward first”
So I changed the path (in /etc/rc.conf) to /usr/local/sbin/named
But now I get:
$ /etc/rc.d/named start
/etc/rc.d/named: WARNING: failed to start named
But nothing is logged in /var/log/messages
For now, I am pointing back to the old 9.8.4 version.
