    This is a pastebin of the config test http://pastebin.com/NxvnrNVr, I can login and get the options page, but it is not pulling in my current zones. Does it not handle split dns? Do I need to downgrade Smarty? I took it down to latest 2.6. It looks like a wonderful tool, but something is just not quite right with the setup. I placed the include in named.conf and disabled selinux to get this far. If I click on anything but change password it throws sql exceptions. Any ideas on what could be wrong?
    Thanks, Bob

      Hey there,
      I'm not sure what you mean by "pulling in your current zones" - this
      tool manages and maintains zones for bind, accessed via an include .conf
      config file. If you have other zones statically maintained yourself
      without the tool, that's fine, it can do that just fine. Additional
      zones you add via smbind can be administered via the web interface and
      the smbind zones and the "manual" zones can co-exist alongside each
      other and everything should be fine.

      That being said, don't expect smbind to magically import your
      pre-existing bind configuration and data files and import them into the
      MySQL database. If you want to do that, you can, and if I recall scripts
      were provided via user contrib which will read your named.conf and zone
      files and crank out a set of MySQL statements to import them. It's
      totally manual though. After you bring the data into MySQL yourself, you
      have to also comment out your named.conf zone references so that there
      isn't two copies of the same zone... then you can start managing an
      existing zone using smbind.

      I hope that helps.

      No idea about the SQL exceptions, those shouldn't be there :-) We will
      need more details on any errors you're getting before we can really help
      though, sorry.

      There are no active maintainers for this project, so later versions of
      PHP, Smarty, Apache, MySQL, and Bind: Your mileage may vary. Sadly I
      personally don't have time to really work on this much any more and I
      don't even have my test environment running to develop or work on bug
      fixes. I can do my best to support you from memory - be warned, I
      haven't looked at the smbind code in about 6 years.
