    Default Fast track does not work

    I just put a fresh install of Backtrack 4 on my computer and after updating everything I got an error. To test if this was due to me updating fast track I ran another install and did not update the sql section.


    still the same result.

    Any way I can solve this? Backtrack run perfectly fine in the past.

    Output:

    msf > db_destroy pentest
    dropdb: could not connect to database postgres: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
    Is the server running locally and accepting
    connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"?

    Default Re: Fast track does not work

    Hello mate,
    To work around it I simply changed one setting in /etc/postgresql/8.3/main/postgresql.conf:

    ssl = true

    I changed to:

    ssl = false

    That is it!

    And thats precisely why well tell people in the forum rules to search before posting questions. Thread closed.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.
