I am using PSA for my web and mail hosting with CentOS.

When I reboot the server and when I start PSA, it says an error occurred: service named failed.

I did a little research and the named.conf file doesn't exist anywhere on my servers. I can't download bind because Plesk already downloaded it and I can't run bind too.

My error log

  • You need to contact Plesk or your reseller.

From your log I would conclude that multiple zone files were accidentally removed or corrupted for unknown reason. Try running /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/dnsmng --update domain.com for each domain you host - it should regenerate zone files. I am not sure it will fix all problems as I cannot tell size of damage.

P.S. Just for reference - Plesk runs exactly the same Bind as shipped by your OS vendor.

  • "Sites are down" sounds quite ambiguous. You can check whether the Bind is your only problem by including your site names in hosts file (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_file) - it is /etc/hosts on Linux and %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts on Windows. If you can see your sites this way, then you at least know you need to repair Bind and not something else.

Are you running your own nameservers or using externally hosted ones?

If you aren't running your own, remove bind9. You do not need it.

If you are running your own nameservers, stop doing that and get external hosting for your nameservers. Practically all registrars will give you at least simple hosting for free.

  • I think Plesk runs a customized version of BIND..

  • I am running my own nameservers and get external hosting isn't an option.
