[Pdns-users] PIPE backend information

Thank you for the advice, however that was the first thing I tried. The 
directory containing the script (/scripts/DNS) is chowned to pdns:pdns (just 
to be safe) as well as chmoded 755 to ensure that any user 'should' be able 
to execute the script without any problem. I also tried a sudo -u pdns 
/scripts/DNS/DNS-Backend to ensure the pdns user could access the script 
directly, and was successful.

I only seem to be having the problem when the pdns server fires up or tries 
to access the script.
