    cPanel | PowerDNS is not available for your system


    cPanel | PowerDNS is not available for your system
    How to Use cPanel's PowerDNS - replacing bind with powerdns



    The PowerDNS open source DNS server software offers high performance with very low memory requirements. cPanels PowerDNS implementation reads DNS data from the BIND files and stores DNSSEC data in a SQLite database. This makes cPanels PowerDNS compatible with most of cPanels DNS Management tools.

    :

    I cant select MyDNS. The radio button is grayed out
    Currently BIND is enabled but it uses too much memory and I want to change it. Thinking about trying MyDNS.
    For some reason, at the selection screen, BIND is the only selectable option while MyDNS & NSD are not and it says "MyDNS/NSD is not available for your system".

    :

    I solved it. All I needed to do was edit /etc/resolv.conf and for the nameservers I set them to Google's Public DNS. So, in order to use MyDNS or NSD you need to have external nameservers listed in the resolv.conf and not your local ones.

    You could just use Google's resolves (8.8.4.4 and 8.8.8.8) or Cloudflare (1.1.1.1 and 1.1.1.2) or the most common,
    which is to just uses the data centre's resolvers.



    :
     nano /etc/resolv.conf
    /etc/resolv.conf dns
    Home Service Configuration Nameserver Selection power dns

    : cPanel | PowerDNS is not available for your system

    I'm very skeptical about this i mean bind has worked for me for years (if it's not broken don't mess with it) however i want to enable dnssec and cPanel only supports that with powerdns .I am wondering if the switch is *really* as simple as choosing Powerdns in the "nameserver selection" interface in whm ? also i use AXFR transfers to secondary dns servers will that be broken ??
    I can only answer the first part of your question, but the general answer is yes. PDNS is compatible with a whole bunch of 'back ends'. cPanel choose to implement it with a bind back end. So what basically happens is that bind gets shut down, PDNS gets started and it's configured to read the exact same zone files that bind was reading. All of the underlying cPanel "stuff" still thinks its using bind/wring bind zone files.
