    I'm in a ... Bind...

    I am going to install DNS for the first time, and I have been advised to do the following:

    yum install bind-chroot
    chmod 755 /var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/
    chmod 755 /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/run/
    chmod 777 /var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
    cd /var/named/chroot/var/named/
    ln -s ../../ chroot
    chkconfig --levels 235 named on
    /etc/init.d/named start

    So that Bind will run in a chroot jail under /var/named/chroot/var/named/.

    Is this 'good' advice? Is there a good reference for a 'first-time' installer?

    I am installing this to:
    1. Learn more about linux; and
    2. Set up a scalix open community edition platform.
