DNS servers issues

i am getting a couple of issues with DNS server.

When I create or delete a virtual server, the process hangs at “Re-starting DNS server” and stopped.

Also when I add or edit DNS records, it keeps working/loading (evident from browser loader icon) but do nothing. I have to go to DNS records to confirm whether its added/edited or not. (usually its added/edited)

Same happens when I restart BIND DNS Server from “Status Menu”

Operating system CentOS Linux 6.7
Webmin version 1.780
Virtualmin version 4.18.gpl

Also, what is the output of this command:

rpm -qa | grep named
