Did you set you path to lua? See the “doc/start.txt” file.

=== Run

First set up the environment:

    export LUA_PATH=$my_path/include/snort/lua/\?.lua\;\;
    export SNORT_LUA_PATH=$my_path/etc/snort/

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort++ installation error


I have snort currently installed on my system. I tried to install snort++ by downloading and running the following commands successfully as mentioned on the github page.

./configure_cmake.sh --prefix=$my_path
cd build
make --j 8 install

However, when i try to do snort -V, it shows the version of snort as Also, when i try to do
$my_path/bin/snort -c $my_path/etc/snort/snort.lua
I get the following error:

FATAL: can't init /home/akhil/snort_src/snort3/etc/snort/snort.lua: /home/akhil/snort_src/snort3/etc/snort/snort.lua:22: module 'snort_config' not found:
