I've been a lurker here for a long time, and this is my first post. Please be gentle.
I searched for solutions here on LQ.org and other resources online, but nothing so far has helped. The Slackware forum seems to be the most appropriate place for this question, but I'm willing to move it if needed.
I have Slackware r13.0 32 bit installed, and I'm interested in getting SNORT installed with Barnyard and BASE to learn about IDS using my own home network. I'm following a guide found here:
I'm having trouble getting past the "create the BASE tables" section. Everything up to that point seems to have been functioning properly. When I attempt to login with my username/password, I get rejected.
The httpd error log reports the following:
[DATE] [error] [client] user snort not found: /frontend
I can manually get into the mysql database with this username/password combination. I've been working on this on and off again for the past few days, and I forgot what led me to the mod_auth_mysql.so module, but I remember reading some posts elsewhere that pointed to this module. I found the source, and used apxs to compile and install it. However, when I insert the "LoadModule mysql_auth_module modules/mod_auth_mysql.so" line into the httpd.conf file, I can't restart the httpd service, and I'm given this error:
httpd: Syntax error on line 117 of /etc/httpd/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/modules/mod_auth_mysql.so into server: /usr/modules/mod_auth_mysql.so: undefined symbol: mysql_select_db
It seems that the frontend URL on my server is attempting to use php to authenticate to the mysql database. Am I on the right track here?
I've seen other posts with similar problems, but they recommend re-installing either mysql or php from the slackware site, but the Slackware package browser site (http://packages.slackware.it/
) is down until a new one is written from scratch. Is there someplace else I can look for these packages if this is what is needed?
