Today I noticed along with problem #42566 that when a virtual server was created, bind could not be restarted from virtualmin.
I went to Webmin bind module to see from there as well. Stopping bind worked, i verified from console Starting bind failed with webmin message Failed to start BIND : Unknown error At the same time on console this message appears (s2 is my server hostname)
s2 loading configuration: permission denied
2016 Oct 5 22:30:10 s2 exiting (due to fatal error)
From console service bind9 start works
Recently, 3 weeks ago, to solve bug 42565 I was adviced to update to the latest bind module. After this update however bind stopped and started from webmin without problems. Only today i noticed the problem.
I recently updated also debian bind package as well (standard Debian 8 stable security update)
I am running BIND 9.9.5-9+deb8u7-Debian (Extended Support Version)
