I am trying to follow a how to, to install Snort and Acidbase: http://www.howtoforge.com/installation-and-configuration-of-intrusion-detection-with-snort-acidbase-mysql-and-apache2-on-ubuntu-9.04-using-spm
When running snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf at the end of the first page of the tutorial I get:
ERROR: Fatal Error, Quitting.
I tried to setup acidbase via web anyway on page 2 of the tutorial. When entering step 2 in the web based setup as described in the tutorial(at 7.1) I receive just a blank page.
I am using Debian.
