"This article shows how you can install the PowerDNS nameserver (with MySQL backend) and the Poweradmin control panel for PowerDNS on an Ubuntu 9.10 system. PowerDNS is a high-performance, authoritative-only nameserver - in the setup described here it will read the DNS records from a MySQL database (similar to MyDNS), although other backends such as PostgreSQL are supported as well. Poweradmin is a web-based control panel for PowerDNS.

"I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

"1 Preliminary Note

"In this example I'm using an Ubuntu 9.10 host with the hostname server1.example.com and the IP address, set up according to the first 10 chapters of this tutorial: The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Karmic Koala (Ubuntu 9.10) [ISPConfig 2].

"I will set up just one PowerDNS server in this example (a master); adding PowerDNS slave(s) can easily be achieved by using MySQL database replication from the master to the slave(s), therefore no zone transfers are needed (this again is similar to MyDNS). MySQL database replication can be set up according to this tutorial: How To Set Up Database Replication In MySQL (PowerDNS also supports native zone transfers (for scenarios where you cannot use MySQL replication) - see http://downloads.powerdns.com/documentation/html/replication.html)."
