winids's server IP address can not be found when starting security console

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, sorry to bother you. Yesterday i'm following the tutorial  "Installing an Apache2 Web Server logging events to a MySQL Database" by Morpheus to my computer using windows 10 and it work, i can access the 'http://winids' on my browser. But today i cant access it. 



I can't even start Apache2.4 and error messages like this always appear.


and when i test the barnyard config file, it show that "unknown mysql server host 'winids'.5c84bd21db42d_winidshosteror.PNG.a1ebd808ee585f182d6a80258d707501.PNG

what should i need to do so i can access the http://winids again?

thank you so much and sorry to bother you all.

Can you ping winids?

When I try to ping winids on cmd but it cant ping the winids because the system cant find host winids.

Looks like there was a problem with the modder file adding winids to the hosts file.

add to hosts file: winids
