How to list domains with DNSSEC

This tutorial applies to a cPanel server with PowerDNS installed

To list the domains on your server that are configured with DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) you need to login as root and execute the following command:

pdnssec list-secure-zones

The result will be something like:
root@web [~]# pdnssec list-secure-zones
Mar 08 15:52:08 [bindbackend] Done parsing domains, 0 rejected, 12 new, 0 removed
yourdomain1.com
yourdomain2.com
All secure zonecount:1
root@web [~]#

yourdomain1.com, yourdomain2.com etc are the domains that uses DNSSEC.
You can go ahead and list the key details for a domain with DNSSEC. Just use the command:
pdnssec show-zone yourdomain1.com
For example, for our domain demo.plothost.com, the info is:

root@web [~]# pdnssec show-zone demo.plothost.com
Mar 08 13:04:11 [bindbackend] Done parsing domains, 0 rejected, 463 new, 0 removed
Zone is not presigned
Zone has NARROW hashed NSEC3 semantics, configuration: 1 0 7 78326f1db1405ff2

How to start,restart and stop Apache web server

Here we will list some very simple commands to start, restart and stop the Apache web server. Of course, you should take care about the stop command as your websites will stop working.

For starting Apache use:

root@web [/home/admin]# /sbin/service httpd start
httpd (pid 11858) already running
root@web [/home/admin]#

As you can see, if the Appache (httpd service) is already running the system will let you know.

To restart httpd:

root@web [/home/admin]# /sbin/service httpd restart
root@web [/home/admin]#

To stop Apache server :

root@web [/home/admin]# /sbin/service httpd stop
root@web [/home/admin]#
