Mailscanner problem on The Perfect SpamSnake - Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
 
Hello all,

Forgive my ignorance for having to post this question. I am following the instructions to set up the Perfect SpamSnake. I am stuck at trying to create a MailWatch web user. When I try to run the command mysql mailscanner -u mailwatch -p I get an error stating that the mailscanner database is an 'Unknown database'. I have a hunch that this is related to Perl DBD-mysql. However, I don't know what step I might have missed or where my configuration could be wrong. Can someone please point me in the right direction. I'm not a complete novice but I won't scoff if someone includes crayon drawings to help.

Thank you,
Robert Brown

Did you create the mailscanner database? This is probably done by the command

Code:

mysql -p < create.sql
from chapter 9.4 Create the database.

Thanks!
 
Thank you falco. I think what happened was I skipped a step. For some reason when I downloaded MailWatch, it paused. When I broke out of the download I think I skipped a few steps. Thanks again

Yes, you have to make sure to read and do all the steps required.
