BIND on CentOS 5

The version of Bind in the normal Red Hat / CentOS repositories is a little out of date. To get more up-to-date versions (9.7.4 at the time of writing) use the Centalt and EPEL repositories.

Create the following file:

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/centalt.repo

And add the following to it:

name=CentALT Packages for Enterprise Linux 5 – $basearch

Next install the EPEL repository with:

rpm -ivh

To install Bind 9.7.4:

yum install bind

To install the chroot jail version of Bind:

yum install bind-chroot
