Power DNS Does Not Work.

I'm using this code as the solution to the same problem I have;
pdns_server --config-dir = / etc / pdns /

but after a while the power dns shuts down again.

    Update: If you have recently updated or have had yum / apt update pdns then you may now discover that pdns is running under its own user pdns

    change the owner of the pdns.conf file to pdns and it should start/restart the service.

    [root@javanehslp etc]#

    i can not find the detail log.
  • Can you try using these permissions and then restart it?
    chown root:root /etc/pdns/pdns.conf
    chmod 644 /etc/pdns/pdns.conf
