cron: DNS servers doesn't get the new zones whenever there is something in fm_dns_track_reloads #66

I can't add new domain in a reliable manner. I don't know if this is directly related to the cron mode, but my DNS doesn't pick up the new domains names.

I started to pinpoint the issue with fm_dns_track_reloads, but I think that other flags may also have issue, like fm_dns_servers.server_update_config, fm_dns_servers.server_build_config, which I don't understand completly.

The user process is supposed to be the following:

  1. Create the new domain
  2. Create the required records for the domain (i.e. SOA, NS, etc.)
  3. Go to the servers page and "Build Config" for the server(s) hosting the domain
  4. The servers get updated using the defined update method

On the backend, the process looks like the following:

  1. Add the domain to fm_dns_domains
  2. Add the user inputed domain records to fm_dns_records and fm_dns_soa
  3. If all required records exist, set fm_dns_servers.server_build_config = 'yes'
  4. User clicks "Build Config"
  5. For cron, this will
    a. Add a record to fm_dns_track_reloads with VALUES($domain_id, $server_serial_no, $soa_serial_no)
    b. Set fm_dns_servers.server_update_config = 'yes'
  6. The client requests $fm_host/buildconf.php which then pulls the server configs and domains set in step 5 above

You can run the following on your dns server that is updated via cron to see if there are any error messages as it could be a simple issue:

sudo php /usr/local/facileManager/fmDNS/dns.php cron debug

It unfortunately doesn't works as expected. I will try the ssh method for now on a new server, and keep looking in the cron method when I have more time.

This is indeed not working properly. I had a chance to take a look and found some big bugs with the cron update method. This issue is targeted for v1.1.
