I bought and installed RRPPROXY Domain reseller module with Tools4ISP and I need to install PowerDNS which I done so and it says in putty.
Error below.
According to your instruction tutorial to open /etc/pdns/conf file but i couldnt find /pdns I found /etc/powerdns/conf instead and add the database details following the example you showed but added my own new database. I logged into cpanel created new database, username password, full permissions and changed it with those then when I added ddnsec and restarted I found out it didn't connect to the database -

Please remove the < > characters as they indicatie an full variable

When using the localhost you it would become:
gmysql-host=localhost
