Hi Kees,

That worked, thanks a lot. The graphs are neat and informative. In the
meanwhile I encountered a problem with latest pdns-recursor that I
downloaded from ftp://ftp.monshouwer.eu/pub/linux/pdns-recursor/
Not very sure my problem is inherent to the latest pdns-recursor actually. I
run CentOS 4.5 with older recursor and pdns-server but here with CentOS 5.0
and packages for EL5 I stumbled. Anyways, I installed
pdns-server-2.9.21-2.el5.MIND.i386.rpm and
pdns-server-backend-mysql-2.9.21-2.el5.MIND.i386.rpm to build authoritative
DNS server and then downloaded and installed
Having done all config files I started both services, pdns-server and
pdns-recursor but the recursor part doesn't work. I've got errors in the

Apr  9 17:44:53 pdnstest pdns[20216]: Not authoritative for 'ya.ru', sending
servfail to (recursion was desired)

Here's part of pdns.log file:

Apr  9 18:26:07 pdns1 pdns[2196]: Guardian is launching an instance

Apr  9 18:26:07 pdns1 pdns[2196]: UDP server bound to

Apr  9 18:26:07 pdns1 pdns[2196]: TCP server bound to

Apr  9 18:26:07 pdns1 pdns[2196]: DNS Proxy launched, local port 20845,
Apr  9 18:26:07 pdns1 pdns[2196]: Creating backend connection for TCP

Apr  9 18:26:07 pdns1 pdns[2196]: Launched webserver on


And these are essentials of my pdns.conf











Any ideas, what is wrong with my setup?

Hello Eugene,

installing this package (and rrdtool) is basically all you need to do. After

installation it starts generating statistic files in /var/www/recursor.
By default only localhost is allowed to view them.
Edit /etc/httpd/conf.d/pdns-recursor.conf to remove this restriction.
