ISC BIND service is installed in %plesk_dir%\dns\dns folder

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 12.5 for Windows

Symptoms

ISC BIND service is installed in %plesk_dir%\dns\dns folder

Cause

Incorrect path for INSTALLDIR and DATADIR parameters in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\PLESK\Installer\Bind registry node

Resolution

The proper path is %plesk_dir% for INSTALLDIR and DATADIR parameters.

DNS service will work inside %plesk_dir%\dns\dns . However, if this is required to install it in proper directory, it can be performed in the following way:

  • create a copy of folder %plesk_dir%\dns\
  • switch DNS service to MS DNS to make hosted domain names resolvable
  • remove ISC BIND server via Plesk installer and dns folder in %plesk_dir% directory
  • modify the installation path for the BIND in Windows registry to the correct one
  • install BIND back and switched DNS service to be served by ISC BIND
