That was bad advice. With mode 666, all system users can see (and
edit!) your SQL passwords.
For better security, make this mode 640 and owned by root:pdns, so ls -l
output looks like this:
-rw-r----- 1 root pdns 17720 Mar 15 09:42 pdns.conf

That is correct as well. The XXXX-auth-44 repos will only ever give you
4.4.x packages, so you'll get patch releases on that branch. When the
time comes to move to 4.5.X, then you'll point to a different repo.
