pdns_server [OPTION]


The PowerDNS Authoritative Server is a versatile nameserver which supports a large number of backends. These backends can either be plain zone files or be more dynamic in nature. Please see the online documentation for more information.


See the online documentation for all options

--daemon Indicate if the server should run in the background as a real daemon, or in the foreground.
--guardian Run pdns_server inside a guardian. This guardian monitors the performance of the inner pdns_server instance. It is also this guardian that pdns_controltalks to.
 Run the server in a special monitor mode. This enables detailed logging and exposes the raw control socket.
 Set the logging level.
--config Show the currently configuration. There are three optional values: –config=default show the default configuration. –config=diff show modified options in the current configuration. –config=check parse the current configuration, with error checking.
