BIND records

Just a quicky.

Are recent VM and webmin updates creating new BIND records?

I’m messing with DynDNS on a server network and found two new records when I turned disabled dns and re-enabled it:


along with this in Apache.conf

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =webmail.domainname
RewriteRule ^(.) http://domainname:20020/ [R]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =admin.domainname
RewriteRule ^(.
) https://domainname:27020/ [R]

are we creating those or is it coming from the dns host?



Yeah, as of 3.60, it creates those two domain names in the hopes of making Virtualmin/Usermin easier to access (ie, your users don’t have to remember those port numbers at the end).

You can modify how that works by going into Server Templates -> Apache Website, and then if you scroll 2/3 of the way down, you’ll see “Redirect webmail.domain to Usermin?” and “Redirect admin.domain to Virtualmin?”.


After rereading the apache code I let out a big DOH!!
