FAQ

Add new questions below.


Q: I've added extra fields to the domains and/or records table. Will this eventually affect the resolution process in any way?

A: No, the gmysql backend uses several default queries to provide PowerDNS Server with data and all of those refer to specific field names, so as long as you don't change any of the predefined field names you are fine.


Q: Can I specify custom sql queries for the gmysql / gpgsql backend or are those hardcoded?

A: Yes you can override the default queries documented at http://doc.powerdns.com/generic-mypgsql-backends.html by specifying them as gmysql-launchname-queryname= in pdns.conf.
