Step by Step Xplico 0.5.2 Installation

This tutorial (thanks to Bricowifi) describes the installation of Xplico and XI in Ubuntu distribution.

sudo su
apt-get install sqlite tcpdump tshark apache2 php5 php5-sqlite build-essential perl zlib1g-dev libpcap-dev libsqlite0-dev libmysqlclient15-dev php5-cli
mkdir xbuild
cd xbuild

Download Xplico source code from SorceForge or BerliOS

tar zxvf xplico-x.y.z.tgz

tar zxvf GeoIP-1.4.5.tar.gz 

cd GeoIP-1.4.5

cd ..
rm -f *.tar.gz

cd xplico
gzip -d GeoLiteCity.dat.gz
rm -f *dat.gz

cd ..
tar jxvf ghostpdl-8.70.tar.bz2

The ghostpcl contains the pcl6 application that it is necessary to “network printer job”

rm -f *.bz2
cd ghostpdl-8.70

Wait for some time

cd ..
cp ghostpdl-8.70/main/obj/pcl6 xplico/
rm -rf ghostpdl-8.70
cd xplico
make install

Now we install the Xplico Interface (XI) that is an graphical/web user interface.

cd /var/www

Download Xplico Interface from SorceForge or BerliOS

tar zxvf xplico_interface-x.y.z.tgz
rm -f xplico_interface*.tgz
chmod -R 777

Save this configuration code in a new file called /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/xplico

<VirtualHost *:9876>
	DocumentRoot /opt/xplico/xi
	<Directory /opt/xplico/xi>
		Options All
		AllowOverride All
		Order allow,deny
		allow from all

	ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
	<Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
		AllowOverride All
		Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
		Order allow,deny
		Allow from all

	ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/xplico_error.log

	# Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
	# alert, emerg.
	LogLevel warn

	CustomLog /var/log/apache2/xplico_access.log combined

    Alias /doc/ "/usr/share/doc/"
    <Directory "/usr/share/doc/">
        Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from ::1/128


After this we have to change Apache ports file to add port of XI. Then, in /etc/apache2/ports.conf add:

# xplico Host port
NameVirtualHost *:9876
Listen 9876

We must also modify the php.ini file to allow uploads (pcap) files. Edit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini.

The lines to modify are:\\
**post_max_size = 100M** \\
**upload_max_filesize = 100M**\\

Enable mode rewrite in Apache:

a2enmod rewrite

And finally restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
