comment Bash snippet for killing a process until it's dead?
Watch out for processes in an uninterruptible sleep (top / ps show 'D' for the process status / state). They can't be killed (even by SIGTERM) until whatever I/O they're blocked on completes. Which in the case of a sufficiently horked hard mounted NFS volume could be never.

comment djbdns vs bind
For the sake of other novices, could you ask a question or two about the 'minor installation issues' you encountered? Hopefully the next novice to have the same problems you did will find the answers here. That's what serverfault is for.

comment How to minimise bind9 memory footprint?
If you try tinydns and encounter any difficulty, please ask a question and I or somebody else will try and help you out. That's what serverfault is here for.

comment djbdns vs bind
You said you had installation issues and implied that a solution wasn't documented where you could easily find it. Were the sites I mentioned of no help? Or did you not find them? You seem to have given up on djbdns. That's ok. If you have time to learn only one authoritative server, BIND is probably the one to focus on. I won't argue that it's the most popular and well documented solution. I'm trying to make it easier for you and other novices to find answers, but if you won't describe your problem or say where you looked or didn't look for help, it's really hard.

Since the license change (djbdns is now in the public domain), anybody who wants to make djbdns behave more 'traditionally' is free to do so. And they are: pjp.dgplug.org/djbdns.

Registrar hosted DNS might be fine for personal domains, but for anything with a dollar cost attached to downtime, go with easyDNS (or maybe UltraDNS if you need an SLA).

How hard did you look for the community? Did you miss lifewithdjbdns.org, djbdnsrocks.org and tinydns.org?

comment What kind of mail server do you use?
You can also get a version that will work out of the box without patching from netqmail.org
