    Thanks for replying that everything is fixed but:

    I apologize for being dense, but I am not sure what to do next  to fix my barnyard2 installation so that snort does show exiting.  I downloaded the latest Winids Barnyard2 Software Development Pack,  Do I unzip it and use the in place of the other builds?  Do I need to start over and redo my installation? Is there another file I should download? 

    Thanks for all your help!


    No you don't need to do anything. What you are seeing is correct. I made an error in the tutorial and have since corrected it. Check out the tutorial, and it should match your install.

  2. Make sure you have ran the modder.vbs file as Administrator and allowed it to reboot on its own.

    Make sure the test.php file has been copied to the d:\winids\apache24\htdocs\base folder.


    Make sure you can ping winids:



    Make sure all the required Microsoft Visual C++ packages have been installed:



    If all the above is correct then please attach the php.ini file and the httpd.conf file.

  3. Been doing these tutorials and have installed 1000+ IDS's in the last 15 years and not once have I had to add an extension.

    It sounds like you have a corrupted .EXE association.This issue can occur if a virus or other 3rd party application has changed or corrupted some default registry settings.

    These types of quirks seem to pop up when the installer fails to install the Windows Intrusion Detection System on a fresh install of Windows.

  4. It appears the snort database has a problem or authentication.

    Go into the task manager and kill the Barnyard2 process.

    Go into the uninstall programs and remove postgresql.

    Go into the d:\winids folder and delete the postgresql folder.

    Return to the tutorial section labeled Installing the PostgreSQL Database Server and complete.

    Go to the tutorial section labeled Configuring the PostgreSQL Database Server and complete.

    Go to the tutorial section labeled Confirming PostgreSQL and Snort are operational and complete.

    Go to the tutorial section labeled Testing the Barnyard2 configuration file and complete.

    This should fix the problem.
