Chroot method here no longer works as of 9.8.0

BIND now needs a bunch of OpenSSL stuff, chrooting as explained here will not work. Pezz 00:13, 09 March 2011 (AEDST)

Ok, marked as out of date, if someone could update this article it would be much appreciated. -- Kynikos 09:15, 8 March 2011 (EST)
If BIND (chroot) is the update for version 9.8.0, maybe it could be merged with this page? -- Kynikos 13:55, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
I tested the chroot with the instructions on this page, and it works, so I've unmarked it as out of date -- Mintaka 21:04, 18 June 2011 (CEST)


What is Bind? It might be nice to explain it first. KitchM 15:06, 21 August 2009 (EDT)

Copied description from its page in Arch packages. -- Kynikos 09:15, 8 March 2011 (EST)


"BIND" is the correct way to represent the BIND system, not "Bind". As such, the contents of Bind should be cut and pasted into BIND and then the page Bind should redirect to BIND. Is anyone opposed to having this done? Jstjohn 18:06, 27 November 2011 (EST)

I deleted the redirect and moved this, so the history is still intact :). thestinger 18:08, 27 November 2011 (EST)
Awesome! Tough to beat that response time! :) I just marked this as closed. Jstjohn 18:10, 27 November 2011 (EST)

Updates to chroot instructions 2012/08

I just did the chroot and I had to add:

   cp /etc/rndc.key ${CHROOT}/etc/

I had to change the ownership/permissions on ${CHROOT}/var and ${CHROOT}/var/log to root:named 775 to get it to log. So either the user 'named' need's to be writing the logfiles or the permissions need to be changed. I'm still looking into this.

There should also be a note about updating the /etc/logrotate.d/named file the change the path to /chroot/named/var/log/named.log

I'd be happy to write this up but it's my first edit so I wouldn't mind having someone look over my shoulder.
