[Snort-users] ADODB version and BASE

I really haven’t seen anything either that points to a problem with 519 in my testing with BASE, but I could be missing something?


It appears that BASE is not compatible with PHP7, at least with my current testing, as BASE produced several errors when starting up.  I don’t suspect PHP5 will be at EOL for a very long time.


Maybe Noah Dietrich could give us a clue as to what he found regarding ADOdb?

I've been using ADOdb 5.19 with BASE 1.4.5 for at least a year and have never had any issues. My use of BASE is pretty basic, but I do use the graphing extensions. I haven't tried the new 5.20 version. I have also held off on moving to PHP 7 because I haven't seen anything to suggest that ADOdb works with anything other than 5.x.

I see there is a new update to ADODB (520). I’m pushing out 518a to clients, and was wondering if anyone has any information about ADODB 519, 0r 520 be compatible with BASE.


I’ve seen a note from Noah Dietrich in his guided install stating “Download and install ADODB 5.18 (not ADODB 5.19, it is not compatible with the current version of

BASE)”, and was dated January 2015, so it was a recent statement. There was no reason given.


Does anyone have a clue as to why, or what we could be seeing as a clue that ADODB above 518 is not compatible.


Is anyone using ADODB 519, 0r 520 with any luck in unison with the BASE console software?
