1. MySQL or PostgreSQL
- Acquire Binaries from metasploit site.
- sudo chmod +x <binary_name>.bin
- sudo ./<binary_name>.bin
- sudo -u postgres createuser --superuser $USER
- psql (you will be prompted for your password)
- createdb metasploit (execute this in the psql shell)
- \q (this quits the psql shell)
- msfconsole (it generally takes about a minute to fire up)
- db_status (should default to postgres but not be connected)
- db_connect username:password@localhost/metasploit (the DB structure will be created and any default content populated).
- Your Done.
