No analysis currently.. Just raw storage..No pfsense although I probably should have one but do we really really need hardware firewall versus just a plain dumb router these days?

Well, you do if you want any (fine-grained) control over it.

Hi, I try to install this but loganalyzer was deleted from freebsd ports 10.x.... :(
also pkg install gives me an error triying to install php56.

Exist another way to install loganalyzer from ports? another fetch address ?
Or an alternative?

Thank you.

I can still find it in the ports tree after fetching an update

/usr/ports/sysutils/loganalyzer is still here

Am I missing something?

I got stuck at the
  • Open http://{jail IP address}/phpmyadmin/setup
The jail IP address gives me a

Not Found

The requested URL /phpMyAdmin/setup was not found on this server.

message. Until that point every worked exactly as described. I have restarted Apache and MySQL but no luck. Any ideas or troubleshooting tips?

It works now. I deleted the whole jail and started from scratch. Everything now works as described. Thanks again for that great tutorial!

maybe. I followed my tracks back through the steps and found I forgot to add index.php to /usr/local/etc/apache24/httpd.conf

I noticed my log server isn't receiving anything. Likely a firewall issue on the jail?

So I've reinstalled the jail a couple different times and I have multiple devices point to it but it doesn't seem to be collecting anything. Anyone have any ideas?

Unfortunately, loganalyzer is no longer present. Is there a workaround or another similar syslog setup that someone would recommend? Here is the specific error (i've fetched updates to no avail):

Code:
root@syslog:/usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg # cd /usr/ports/sysutils/loganalyzer && make install clean DEFAULT_VERSIONS=php=56
/usr/ports/sysutils/loganalyzer: No such file or directory.

I ended up installing the LogAnalyzer part from a tarball. End result works great! I still need to setup some pruning, but otherwise, this is going to work very nicely for me. Here are a few notes from the portion of my install where I used the tarball to install the necessary files within apache:

Code:
// Install LogAnalyzer
wget http://download.adiscon.com/loganalyzer/loganalyzer-4.1.5.tar.gz
tar zxvf loganalyzer-4.1.5.tar.gz
cp -r loganalyzer-4.1.5/src/ /usr/local/www/apache24/data/loganalyzer
cp -r loganalyzer-4.1.5/contrib/* /usr/local/www/apache24/data/loganalyzer
cd cd /usr/local/www/loganalyzer/
chmod +x configure.sh secure.sh
ln -s /usr/local/www/loganalyzer /usr/local/www/apache24/data/loganalyzer
service apache24 restart

Had some trouble running through this when querying mysql. When doing this:
Code:
USE Syslog;
SELECT * FROM SystemEvents;

Not seeing any records returned.

There also appears to be some issues with my php configuration in /var/log/httpd-error.log:
Code:
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/local/lib/php/20131226/php_mbstring.so' - Cannot open "/usr/local/lib/php/20131226/php_mbstring.so" in Unknown on line 0
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/local/lib/php/20131226/php_pdo_mysql.so' - Cannot open "/usr/local/lib/php/20131226/php_pdo_mysql.so" in Unknown on line 0

I do fine but don't get that far and get this error:

Code:
root@syslog:~ # cd /usr/ports/www/apache24 && make
===>  apache24-2.4.29 Invalid perl5 version 5.20.
*** Error code 1

Stop.
make: stopped in /usr/ports/www/apache24
root@syslog:/usr/ports/www/apache24 


I'm on 9.10.

Any ideas or is there a better version of this?

on FN 11 most of the installs want to work? Has anyone had any luck getting this running on V11? Nothing comes up on google, just this post every time.

Having similar issue as Jrod, any thoughts on updating the guide for v11?
I was able to get the sql portion to work but gave up on the apache, I just used MY SQL Workbench instead.

Anyway I walked through the steps to install the latest version of mysql for freeebsd and it seemed to work but I could not remote in or do anything.
After hours I found it!

you have to change the bind-address to 0.0.0.0
I prefer nano ("pkg install nano") so the command I have saved in my notes is:
ssh or enter the jail through the gui and use
"nano /usr/local/etc/mysql/my.cnf"
then save
then do a restart of the server:
"service mysql-server restart"

Hope this helps.
