    I installed snort following the patch_detail, but no luck.
    There are info no files as below:

    /sbin/service: line 6: /etc/rc.d/init.d/snort: No such file or directory
    /sbin/service: line 6: exec: /etc/rc.d/init.d/snort: cannot execute: No such file or directory

    I’m a new user of ZeroShell. I’ve the same problem when using any version of ZS 2.0. Does anybody have an idea where we can find a patch for more recents versions than beta12?

    After few days looking into patch downloaded from, I found the way to install this patch on ZS2.0. I’m using ZS2.0RC2. You can try that as following steps:
    Download and extract patch:

    cd /Database
    tar xvfj DA12-Snort-2.8.5-1.0.beta12.tar.bz2
    cd DA12

    Edit install script to match release version:


    Find and replace 1.0 by 2.0 as bellow:

      if ! ls /Database/opt/2.0/*/db/$D/Description  2>/dev/null > /dev/null ; then
    echo "ABORTED: dependence failed: the update $D is required. Please install it."
    exit 10

    Change current directory to tars directory:

    cd tars

    Uncompressed tar file in this directory:

    tar -xjf DA12.tar.bz2

    Move to opt directory:

    cd opt

    Change name of 1.0 directory to 2.0 and subdirectory beta12 to RC2 to match ZS release version:

    mv 1.0 2.0
    cd 2.0
    mv beta12 RC2

    Open file RC2/packages/bin/pcre-config:

    vim RC2/packages/bin/pcre-config

    and replace line as bellow:


    Open file RC2/packages/etc/snort.conf:

    vim RC2/packages/etc/snort.conf

    Find and replace all lines content ‘1.0/beta12’ by ‘2.0/RC2’ using replace function of vim:


    Now go to RC2/tars directory:

    cd RC2/tars

    Extract tar file in this:

    tar -xzf DA12-files.tar.gz

    cd etc

    Recreate link of snort.conf:

    rm -f snort.conf
    ln -s /Database/opt/2.0/RC2/packages/etc/snort.conf snort.conf

    Make a new directory and move init.d directory into it:

    mkdir rc.d
    mv init.d rc.d

    Now remove old tar file, recreate new one and remove directory:

    cd ..
    rm -f DA12-files.tar.gz
    tar -czf DA12-files.tar.gz etc
    rm -rf etc

    And now, recreate DA12.tar.bz2 file:

    cd /Database/DA12/tars
    rm -f DA12.tar.bz2
    tar -cjf DA12.tar.bz2
    rm -rf opt

    And run install script:

    cd ..

    You can using web face to view log with session snort.
