A. Troubleshooting

Of the problems you may encounter while running MyDNS, the vast majority will be caused by inappropriate data in your tables. MyDNS does not know what your intentions are, and will serve the data as you have specified it. The best way to make sure your data seems reasonable is to run the provided data validation utility. (See section 5.1 mydnscheck.)

If you give the `--enable-debug' option to the `configure' script, MyDNS will be compiled with built-in debug messages. You can then run MyDNS with the `-d, --debug' flag, and it will output copious amounts of debugging information. If you are trying to debug, do not run MyDNS as a daemon, as the debugging information will not be output.
