I’ve not made any mention of PDNSOps since the original blog post back in October 2011. This isn’t for lack of trying, it’s just that the holidays were a busy time and didn’t allow for a lot of programming time. We have made some progress dealing with a bunch of bugs, and we’ve also figured out our future plans for the project.
For the last few years, my DNS server of choice (when I run my own) is PowerDNS. It is very simple to use, and the ability to run multiple “backends” makes it wonderfully configurable. My choice setup is PowerDNS running the MySQL backend. Of course the question is “How do I manage the MySQL backend?” and that is where PDNSOps comes in.
