    Default Armitage - Metasploit RPC daemon won't start

    Hi,

    I'm using BT4 R2 and started following the guide to install Armitage:
    http://www.offensive-security.com/ba...acktrack-4-r2/

    I've got as far as starting the daemon and it hangs at this point with no errors. I've rebooted and tried 3 times but always the same, so each time I have to exit it manually. I've waited 2 hours, so I'm confident it's broken.

    Any help would be appreciated as I've searched the forums and google but can't seem to resolve it.

    Many thanks

    Issue resolve - newbie stupidity on my part.

    I used the credentials of my existing Mysql metasploit database instead of thinking I could create another, and it worked. Sorry - should have tried that before posting.

    Most definitely not broken. Here is what I did to get things working with postgres
    I used
    Code:
    root@bt:~# apt-get update
    root@bt:~# apt-get install armitage
    root@bt:~# /etc/init.d/postgresql-8.3 start
    root@bt:~# msfrpcd -U msf -P test -t Basic &
    root@bt:~# cd /pentest/exploits/armitage/
    root@bt:/pentest/exploits/armitage# ./armitage.sh
    Then I set the DB Driver to postgres in the drop down menu, checked SSL(if it wasn't already) and used the DB connect string;
    Code:
    postgres:password@127.0.0.1/armitage

    leave the daemon...open another terminal and type
    Code:
     java -jar /path/to/armitage/armitage.jar
    Edit : i must have missed the second post...and anyway u`ve been further than just starting msfrpcd
    If anything can go wrong, it will....
