I am re-configuring my home server, and have followed the following
directions to the letter
<http://www.howtoforge.org/perfect-server-ubuntu-9.04-ispconfig-2-p4>
for setting up my DNS however when I attempt to restart the bind9
service I received the following errors...

# /etc/init.d/bind9 restart
 * Stopping domain name service... bind9
rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused

[ OK ]
 * Starting domain name service... bind9
[fail]

The tutorial i am following notes that upon error I should
check /var/log/syslog for errors where i found the following

Sep  5 10:53:25 r3d91ll named[4010]: command channel listening on
127.0.0.1#953
Sep  5 10:53:25 r3d91ll named[4010]: command channel listening
on ::1#953
Sep  5 10:53:25 r3d91ll named[4010]: couldn't open pid file
'/var/run/bind/run/named.pid': No such file or directory
Sep  5 10:53:25 r3d91ll named[4010]: exiting (due to early fatal error)
  
question will the following solve my problem or make it worse?

mk /var/run/bind/run/named.pid

thanks
Todd
