Snort Installation Guides now posted

Thanks to the tremendous work of our Snort Community, I've posted new install guides for Snort to the website.

These individuals start working on the install guides early on in the process, testing our beta releases, RC code, and finally, retesting when we do the final release.

The Snort Team would like to thank Jason Weir and William Parker for their dedication to keeping their docs current and also for allowing us to host the docs for them.

Please feel free to link to the install guides on  They are there for you!

Check out the new guides here:

They are posted for:

  • Fedora 17
  • OpenBSD 5.1
  • Debian 6.0.6
  • OpenSuSE 12.1
  • FreeBSD 8.2
  • FreeBSD 9.0
  • CentOS 6.3

If you'd like to submit Snort documentation for official hosting on the website, please send it to me here: joel [at] snort [dot] org.
