root

root simply specifies the root of where to find (zone) files.

Description

The default root is the current working directory of CoreDNS. The root plugin allows you to change this. A relative root path is relative to the current working directory.

This plugin can only be used once per Server Block.

Syntax

. {
    root /etc/coredns/zones
}
