DNSDusty is my answer to the above problems that I saw in existing web-based DNS management tools.
All updates to DNS are done through the dynamic DNS interface, using signed updates. There is no external database. It simply does a zone transfer when it needs to get a listing of records.
It has worked well for me so far on my home DHCP/DNS server, which uses the ISC BIND and DHCP server. It has very basic functionality at this point. You can add records one at a time, and can delete them via checkboxes.
DNSDusty comes set up to be installed according to the Debian packaging guidelines. The sources also come with an EPM listfile. If you have the EPM program installed (see http://www.easysw.com), then you should be able to package the software by running:
% epm -v -f native dnsdusty
Once you generate the package, install it with your OS's installation tool.
You'll then need to modify the config file, which is by default at etc/dnsdusty/dnsdusty.conf.
The config file should only be writable by root, and only readable by the user that your webserver runs as. Since it contains the key to allow updates to your webserver, make sure that you secure it well, unless you want the world to be able to update your server.
DNSDusty requires the following perl modules:
