I install successfull webmin on my ubuntu,everything its ok. I have dynamic ip, my provider offers me an ddns and i get very easy and fast my external ip address. My question is : How to automatically update the zones for my domain. On dynamic ip update tab , on external address i have the correct address, but on zones no, i need to enter and press change ip address. i dont need DynDns when i have my provider ddns for free. I just wana update the zones automatticaly with my new external ip address when that its changed. I saw there its something about external script, i dont find any model or how looks like.I created one in php but doesent run…dont update anything.
The zone get update only when dynamic ip address its on and runs a script, or exist a setting on webmin/virtualmin to get update all the time with new ip address and put it to the zones ?
Thanks a lot
Odd, just posted a question about dynamic dydns and know its going to be a tough nut to crack.
However the domand ‘virtualmin --domain domain.com --ip x.x.x.x’ should help.
You would have to write a script that detects the ip changing and runs this for eatch domain when it does. Fairly stright forward.
lets go down this rabbit hole together ;).
Thanks a lot ,
I stay last night and i figure it out and its like this and working ,
dig +short mydynamicdns.com,
i will modify to verify only if change the ip, but its ok seems my script runs ok.
I’ve been just manually updating my IP on the rare occasions that it changes for a couple of years now. I’m doing my domain names at Google (the evil empire), and just today while trying to answer something in a networking chat room on Matrix I saw they added service for DDNS. Apparently there are a couple Ubuntu/Linux programs that will work for Virtualmin, I think…
I’m literally learning about this as I’m posting my reply here. I’m hoping one of those will be the thing I tell Virtualmin is the External Script in the Virtualmin => Addresses and Networking => Dynamic IP Update section. My vague understanding right now is that Virtualmin will heal it’s own self and virtual servers when the External IP changes if I:
- set Dynamic update enabled? to
- set Source of IP address to
Address visible from the Internet,
and then try to run a script or connect to DynDNS to fix entries at the domain name service provider. It seems like
ddclient doesn’t need to be launched, but is running as a service that tells Google when configured right that the IP needs maintenance.
Am I getting that right?
I did get this to work, I think!
It’s hard to get the ISP to change IP assignments on demand.
