Did you extract to base/ under the web root?  I think the latest version
goes to base.<ver> instead of just base/.

Hi All,

below is my base_conf.php settings. I get a blank page in both 
Firefox/Mozilla when typing localhost/base even though this,
shows up in the url box.
PHP is working, as I can bring up the NetworkMonitorTool with just 
entering localhost. I'm following Patrick Harper's Tutorial for 
Fedora3/Snort/Base/PHP. Perhaps I've missed something fundamental.?
