Virtualmin is configured to setup DNS zones but this system is not setup to use itself as a DNS server

Failed to save enabled features : Virtualmin is configured to setup DNS zones, but this system is not setup to use itself as a DNS server. Either add 127.0.0.1 to the list of DNS servers, or turn off the BIND feature on the module config page.

This is a generic error telling the website administrator that the local DNS entries are being checked using external methods. Most of the time, this wont be a real issues but it causes a performance spike which depends highly on where the DNS entries are being searched.

Establish an SSH connection to your remote server using putty for Windows, Linux and Unix. I normally use Windows when setting up my *nix servers and I prefer kitty portable SSH client from 9bis. Kitty portable SSH client is a fork of Putty and a very good client.

For first time connections, a certificate will be presented to you which you can either accept and download or deny which will cause a termination of the current SSH session. In order to continue, you should “accept”, this prompt will also reappear if your server have done a massive change on it’s private certificate.
