namedmanager Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies namedmanager-1.9.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

NamedManager is an AGPL web-based DNS management system designed to make the adding, adjusting and removal of zones/records easy and reliable.

Rather than attempting to develop a new nameserver as in the case of many DNS management interfaces, NamedManager supports the tried and tested Bind nameserver, by generating Bind compatible configuration files whenever a change needs to be applied.

This also ensures that an outage of the management server web interface or SQL database will not result in any impact to DNS servers.

Key Features

  • Allows addition, adjusting and deletion DNS zones.
  • Supports Bind 9 and pushes Bind compatible configuration and zone files to configured servers.
  • Supports Amazon Route53
  • Ability to import from Bind zonefile support.
  • Includes a log tailer that runs on the name servers and sends back logs that are rendered in the web interface.
  • SOAP API to allow other tools to hook into the interface.
  • Written in PHP and uses a MySQL database backend.
  • Supports IPv4 and IPv6 users of the management interface.
  • Supports IPv4 and IPv6 forward and reverse records zones.
  • Supports internationalized domain names.
