Daniel posted his excellent quick and dirty script for adding sites to your Apache Conf

File. Here's my quick and dirty script for adding domains to your DNS config files. (My

script does not provide the ego boost Daniel's does ;-)

Since I park quite a few domains for friends, as well as provide redirection/bounce

domains for some companies I many times need to do batches of domains. With the script and

template below, you can either pass the script one domain name, or pass it a file that has

a list of domain names. The script will then create a named.<domainname> file for

each domain and also create an add.named.conf file that you can then manually append to

your named.conf file.

For my LINUX server, named files reside in /var/named. I created a special

sub-directory called 'park' to store all my 'other' domains. I keep all my personal and my

personal business domains in /var/named, this allows for less clutter. The script assumes

that you set up your parked domains the same. You can edit it to either not do that, or

add additional functionality to branch on demand.

To use the script below, cut out the new-site.cgi

and save as a text file in /var/named/park. Verify /usr/bin/perl is your perl5 executable

and chmod the file to 700. You should be only playing with these files as root anyway. Cut

out the named.template and save as a text file in

the same directory as new-site.cgi.

For One Domain, To activate:

For More than one domain, create a text file with the list of new domains.

To activate:

Take the add.named.conf file and append it to your named.conf file. Restart named.

Hope this saves you some time and most of all have fun!!.

## Accepts two types of input

## -f <filename>

## -f indicates read from file a
