    CRUD records with PowerDNS?

    Hey guys,

    I am having a bit of trouble with PowerDNS queries to MySQL. I am not sure how to associate IPs with individual DNS records, or how that works.

    Is there any way to properly link IP records with DNS records in PowerDNS?

    I've not used PowerDNS, but from a quick scan of their docs it looks like you just need to run a simple MySQL query to create an A record - an A record is what allows a lookup from hostname to IP address.

    INSERT INTO records (domain_id, name, content, type,ttl,prio)
    VALUES (1,'www.test.com','','A',120,NULL);

    Ah, alright. This whole PowerDNS thing is tough for me to wrap my head around. When the new record is inserted into the database, is there a PowerDNS process that auto-propagates the new record to the interweb, or do you have to shell_exec() and reload httpd or whichever process handles DNS?
