I've just installed SNORT and ACID/BASE following this step by step tutorial: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SnortIDS on a remote Debian host over SSH. The main difference being that I have already setup a firewall that fillers all incoming traffic except for SSH, HTTPS and loopback.
Now when I try to access https ://domain.xx/acidbase/base_db_setup.php , i.e. acidbase's front end in the final configuration step I get the following error:
You don't have permission to access /acidbase/base_db_setup.php on this server.
I have already run this command:
sudo sed -i "s#allow\ from\ 127.0.0.0/255.0.0.0#allow\ from\ 127.0.0.0/255.0.0.0\ 10.10.1.10/255.255.255.0 my-vpn-gateway.xx#" /etc/acidbase/apache.conf
and restarted Apache.
I also tried to access the URL from within my SSH session via Lynx web browser but whenever I type: https ://localhost/ it tells me:
Unable to make secure connection to remote host.
However when I type: https ://mydomain.xx/ it works. So maybe I also have some bug in my Apache configuration.
The remote host is running an Apache 2.2 web server, and I disabled the VirtualHost on port 80 and left only the one for port 443.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
