Metasploit Issue


Recommended Posts

When I installed metasploit initially, i was prompted with this:

Installation folder

Please, choose a folder to install Metasploit

Select a folder [/opt/metasploit-4.3.0]: /~/ <---- first mistake, (imo)


Install as a service

You can optionally register Metasploit as a service. This way it will

automatically be started every time the machine is started.

Install Metasploit as a service? [Y/n]: n <------ 2nd mistake, which leads me to my issues!


Metasploit Service

Please enter the port that the Metasploit service will use.

SSL Port [3790]:

what is the port, what is it asking? (i went with 3790)

Ok so it all went well, i was able to launch msfconsole just fine until I restarted my system. Now when I launch msfconsole I see this:

[-] Failed to connect to the database: could not connect to server: Connection refused

Is the server running on host "localhost" ( and accepting

TCP/IP connections on port 7337?

followed by a bunch of jargon relating to postresql, can some one assist me in making it launch the database on start up *see 2nd mistake above*

Thanks in advance.

You need to install and/or configure postgres.

It was installed with the whole package. if you see above, i chose no when it said do i wish to install metasploit as a service on start up. what i'm trying to figure out is how to make it do so, so i wont get those errors.

*edit* Ok I solved my own issue. Here is how

$ echo 'exec /~/postgresql/scripts/ctl.sh "$@"' >/etc/init.d/framework-postgres

chmod +x /etc/init.d/framework-postgres

/etc/init.d/framework-postgres start

update-rc.d framework-postgres defaults

NOW my new issue is when I attempt to launch armitage i get this error:

No protocol specified

No protocol specified

Warning: Uncaught exception: java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable. at gui.sl:364
