Troubleshooting tips

  • I'm installing on Kali Linux: check out the troubleshooting section of the Installing Dradis on Kali Linux guide.

  • The path '~/dradis-plugins' does not exist:
    First, check the file structure. Have you created any folders other than dradis-ce? If not, try running: $ ./bin/setup.
    Did the download create a folder like /community that holds the dradis-plugins folder? If so, move the contents of the community folder out into the same file that holds the dradis-ce folder.

  • An error occurred while installing gem-name (1.0.0), and Bundler cannot continue:
    This is ikely a system-specific dependency issue. The first line of defense is to Google the specific error message to see whether StackOverflow or similar sites offer a solution. If you cannot resolve the issue, let us know in the Community Forums

  • ActionController::UrlGenerationError in HomeController#index
    No route matches {:action=>"init", :controller=>"home"}
    : If you see this error(pictured below) when you navigate to Dradis, go to /setup in your browser to force Dradis to start the setup process.
