bind dns server dose'nt up on centos 6.5 and say named.conf.local not found

hi dear

I recently purchased a VPS. i installed centos 6.5 and update os too. then install vitualmin and seems is good for me . But I have a problem with bind dns and I’m tired of this problem. when i click for make up bind dns server I met with this message.

Failed to start service : Failed to start BIND : Starting named: Error in named configuration: /etc/named.conf:48: open: /etc/named.conf.local: file not found [FAILED]

Is there anyone who could help me. I can give you my password, because I did not do much and am new to linux.


How did you install Virtualmin – did you use the script for that?

Also, what output does this command produce:

rpm -qa | grep bind

Howdy thank you for reply

i installed from twice from first! (centos & virtualmin) and now DNS Bind hasn’t any problem and work well. but postfix mail server not run and says:

Failed to start service :

I don’t know , why?


When you try to start Postfix, take a look in /var/log/maillog, and see what error(s) are being reported there.


mail.log and mailerror are empty. i fix postfix by reinstall again. ofcourse only postfix and became run well now. but when i want create virtual server , this massege is appear:

Failed to create virtual server : No virtual domains file (virtual_alias_maps) was found in your Postfix configuration!

then i went to this section webmin>postfix mail server>mail aliases> and saw Alias databases used by the local delivery agent set is on : no map set . i set Map specifications and hash:/etc/aliases/virtualmin but this folder isn’t in /etc/aliases and I don’t this foder must be here or not.
