Installing the Metasploit Framework on Linux
  1. Open the terminal.
  2. Enter the following command to add the build repository and install the Metasploit Framework package:
Bash:
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rapid7/metasploit-omnibus/master/config/templates/metasploit-framework-wrappers/msfupdate.erb > msfinstall && chmod 755 msfinstall && ./msfinstall

After the installation completes, open a terminal window and type the following to start msfconsole:
Bash:
./msfconsole

The prompt asks you if you want to use and set up a new database. Type y or yes to run the initial configuration script to create the initial database.


If all goes well, the console starts and displays the following:
Bash:

To check to see if the database was set up, run the following command:
Bash:
db_status

If the Metasploit Framework successfully connected to the database, the following status displays:
Bash:
postgresql connected to msf

Managing The Database
If you did not opt to create a database when msfconsole loaded for the first time, you can use the msfdb script to configure postgresql to run as your local user and store the database in ~/.msf4/db/.

To enable and start the database, run the following command:
Bash:
msfdb init

After the database starts, you can use any of the following commands to manage the database:
  • msfdb reinit - Deletes and reinitializes the database.
  • msfdb delete - Deletes the database.
  • msfdb start - Starts the database.
  • msfdb stop - Stops the database.
  • msfdb status - Shows the database status.
