Installation Linux Debian installation instructions


Once you have all the modules installed you just have to create a database called spampot or whatever you wish to name it, create a user with password and then assign the name of your database to the user you’ve already created.

Please set this values on the spampot-ng.conf file.

In order to run the tool you have to run it with sudo or using a wrapper as authbind, here are the instructions

sudo perl
authbind --deep perl
