I have a how to on the snort.org page for centos/RHEL4/FCX that work well.
It includes the base install.  I have a page for OinkMaster coming soon that
I have a few people looking over for me for grammatical correctness (since I
am not too  good at that) and then I am doing a barnyard doc to help people
out. If your interested in testing for me let me know.  Most of what I write
is based off my install guides for Linux but it will work for almost

The BASE config file (base_conf.php) is very similar to the ACID config 
file (acid_conf.php) so you shouldn't have any problems.  As far as 
Apache, SSL, PHP, and Snort are concerned, if you follow a generic HOWTO 
to get them installed, you're almost done.  The only thing left is to 
configure your database and test everything.

Test each item individually after you have it installed, so if something 
doesn't work, you know where to look.  Aside from that, search Google 
for example config files for each of them (there are plenty).  If you 
still get stuck, let me know.



It said "use Linux 2.4 kernel or better" so I installed FreeBSD.  Now 
everything runs better.  Why didn't they just tell me to do that to 
begin with?
