Hello Paul,

thanks for your reply. I have two more questions:

Is it right that I can use OpenDNSSEC with sqlite for about 200 domains?

Do you know until when softhsm and opendnssec will be available in EPEL7?

Unfortunately, opendnssec does not support runtime switching between sqlite and mysql. Since mysql is quite the dependancy for people will just a handful of zone, I opted for sqlite as the default for
EPEL6 and EPEL7, and this will also be the default for RHEL7.

there is some old documentation on opendnssec that states sqlite is unstable and one should prefer mysql, but I believe that is oudated advise my now.
