I just found out about Backbox, so I decided to download it and install it om vmware.
I performed a system update and a Metasploit update.
No problems there, but when i try to start Armitage I get a "could not connect to database" error and it won't start.
So you can imaging my disappointment when I download a complete pentesting system and stuff does not work out of the box.
Was this not tested before the release of the ISO?

I also use Backtrack and Armitage works just fine when I install backtrack on Vmware from the ISO image.

The error I'm talking about can be found on this page, but the solution on this page does not work :-)

Hi,

I read [1] and [2].
followed the instruction in [1] and was unable to find the database.yml flie at location /opt/config/database.yml, it was at location /opt/backbox/config/database.yml.
Changing the password and user did not make a difference, the same DB error is generated on startup.
The TOR browser is also not launching after connecting to the Torbrowser network.

Thank you for your reply.
I think I will wait for the next release of Blackbox.
Best regards good luck with developing the Blackbox platform,

Daytona

have you started up db?
Code: [Select]
sudo /etc/init.d/postgresql start
and configured the correct port?
Tor browser is different and doesn't correlated with armitage, what BACKBOX (not bLack) version are you playing with? Now we are 3.0, released 1 month ago. Have you followed any other guide to configure metasploit and armitage?

Hi and thank you,

I know Tor browser has nothing to do with Armitage.  ;D I installed a new version and this new version starts the Tor browser without any problems.
So this part is fixed.

I got Armitage to work after a reinstall, so the second part is also fixed

I like the Backbox look.

Thank you for your support.
I'm now going to dive into the Backbox world!!  ;)

Greetz,
Daytona


BTW I use BackBox 3.0
