BIND : Starting named, permission denied - cybernetwebdesign - 05-12-2016

Problem solved.

I saved copies of my named.conf and /var/named/hosts (forward and reverse)files.
ran yum remove bind
cd /var/named
rm -Rf * (be carefull)
ran yum install bind
copied my named.conf and /var/named host files back
service named start

The service started right up no issue. Dig testing was perfect.

Bottom line: do not select the chroot option at OS install if you do want to use it. chroot is good for most cases.
