Full Description


PowerDNS Web-GUI - Built by Flask


  • Multiple domain management
  • Local / LDAP user authentication
  • Support Two-factor authentication (TOTP)
  • User management
  • User access management based on domain
  • User activity logging
  • Dashboard and pdns service statistics
  • DynDNS 2 protocol support
  • Edit IPv6 PTRs using IPv6 addresses directly (no more editing of literal addresses!)


PowerDNS Version Support:

PowerDNS-Admin supports PowerDNS autoritative server versions 3.4.2 and higher.

pdns Service

I assume that you have already installed powerdns service. Make sure that your /etc/pdns/pdns.conf has these contents

PowerDNS 4.0.0 and later


PowerDNS before 4.0.0


This will enable API access in PowerDNS so PowerDNS-Admin can intergrate with PowerDNS.

Create Database

We will create a database which used by this web application. Please note that this database is difference from pdns database itself.

You could use any database that SQLAlchemy supports. For example MySQL (you will need to pip install MySQL-python to use MySQL backend):

MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE powerdnsadmin;

MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON powerdnsadmin.* TO powerdnsadmin@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'your-password';

For testing purpose, you could also use SQLite as backend. This way you do not have to install MySQL-python dependency.


In this installation guide, I am using CentOS 7 and run my python stuffs with virtualenv. If you don't have it, lets install it:

$ sudo yum install python-pip
$ sudo pip install virtualenv

In your python web app directory, create a flask directory via virtualenv

$ virtualenv flask

Enable virtualenv and install python 3rd libraries

$ source ./flask/bin/activate
(flask)$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Web application configuration is stored in file. Let's clone it from file and then edit it

(flask)$ cp 
(flask)$ vim

Create database after having proper configs

(flask)% ./

Run the application and enjoy!

(flask)$ ./
