Bind dns server disappeared

OS type and version CentOS Linux release 7.9.2009
Webmin version 2.001
Virtualmin version 7.2 Pro
Related packages Bind DNS

hi Support

This morning i have realised that BIND DNS isnt installed on my server. It was working fine until the most recent upgrade.

Now i see the following message
“The primary configuration file for BIND /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf does not exist, or is not valid. Create it?”

I try to create one but it fails with not been able to reach to some ip address.

All the existing virtualmin server on the machine are still working. Can you please investigate or let me know how can i fix it as this is my production server and if it were to restart that would affect all my clients.
