[Burp Enterprise] Install using PostgreSQL

Javier | Last updated: Nov 19, 2019 02:42PM UTC

Hi, I've been trying to install the BE server. It all goes well until it gets to the database configuration: Enter the JDBC connection details for your database JDBC URL jdbc:oracle:thin:@//[jdbc:postgresql:burpenterprise] jdbc:postgresql://127.0.0.1:5432/burpenterprise Enter the database user that the Enterprise Server will use Username [beserver] Password Enter the database user that Agents will use Username [beserver] beagent Password The Enterprise Server database connection is not valid. Enter the JDBC connection details for your database Thanks, Javi

Could you send your log files to support@portswigger.net (these should be in /var/log/BurpSuiteEnterpriseEdition/ on Linux). There is a separate log file for each day, and the current day's log file doesn't contain a date. If you can, please replicate the issue then send us the latest log files.

Both BE and the PostgreSQL server are running in the same machine. The system is a freshly installed Linux x64 box. PostgreSQL version is 11.5, but anyways the installer does not even connect to it (checked via tcpdump -i any port 5432) BE version is v1.1.04

Hi, The installer didn't write any log: [root@burp-enterprise ~]# find /var/log/BurpSuiteEnterpriseEdition/ /var/log/BurpSuiteEnterpriseEdition/ /var/log/BurpSuiteEnterpriseEdition/test

The current version of Burp Enterprise supports and has been tested with version 10.8 of PostgreSQL, could you test using that version? Burp Enterprise will support the version of PostgreSQL you are using in upcoming releases.

Hi, I don't think it is related to the PostgreSQL or MySQL server version. The installer does not even connect to the server. Not a single packet.

Hi We'll check with our developers when the next release is due which will support the version of PostgreSQL you are using. In the meantime though, could you confirm if you were able to run the test using version 10.8, this will help us rule out potential problems.

Hi, That didn't work. Let me insist: the installer does not even try to connect to the server. It does not get to the point of having protocol issues. No TCP connection is established.

Hi Javier Thank you for testing and confirming, we do appreciate you doing that for us. Have any logs been created in <Enterprise installation dir>/.install4j?

Michelle, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Nov 20, 2019 01:44PM UTC

Just to follow up the files will be named as follows: /usr/local/burpsuite_enterprise/.install4j/files.log /usr/local/burpsuite_enterprise/.install4j/installation.log

Hi, I ended up installing using the embeded database, as I was a bit in a hurry. I've got those logs, but I guess they are from that install. I will try to install using another DB in the following weeks.
