web gui for dns server (internal)

Hi,

I've notice that there are dns providers that issues web gui to their clients to update dns entries. Is there an application that works the same way that I can install on my linux box?

I'm looking to run an internal dns server using a web gui so that I can hand it off to another person to maintain versus creating zones manually.

linux is centos


Cheers!

Not sure what you are asking?

Web access to write into the filesystem is a security issue, which is why bind+mysql is used in this fashion.

Do you want a web interface that will maintain/work with your existing setup with the files in the /var/named or similar location?

mysql and bind is okay, I was looking for an application that can help manage DNS with user friendly interface and the developers actually active on the project for bug fixes and stuff

There are occasions that soe interfaces mature enough such that they do not have to be as actively managed.
I'm not using either, so can not say for certain which is better.
You could try either interface as an example/starting point to develop your own.

Are your needs limited to Dns management only?  Search for cpanel alternatives if you wish to expand what you can/would delegate to another user via a GUI.

Webmin is also good one
