Step 1: Question: Credential Harvester (SET)

Quick question in regards to the credential harvester in SET. Previously I was able to use this feature without any issues on my old Backtrack 5 r3 machine, however since I switched over to a Kali linux 2 machine none of the credentials seem to be showing up.

I did a sudo apt-get update and upgrade on the machine already, updated SET, the machines are on the same network.

I also did some checking and it seems that at least some people where having issues with Apache2, which they recommended turning off apache2 before running SET from the usr-share-set-configuration folder however I do not have such a folder (modules, readme, src exist). I'm guessing this may be due to a newer version of SET, however I was still unable to find the config file to edit. I did try manually turning off apache2 before starting SET (service apache2 stop).

(Tried Firefox and Chrome, the cloned page does show up)

Any thoughts? Thank you

when you look in the /var/www/html folder, are there any files named "harvester-[date-and-time]" ? If yes, are they empty?

-j7 :)

So the odd thing is I do indeed have harvester files there, however when I open them in gedit they are all blank.

And thank you for the help, this is the first time I have posted in the forums.

I had the same issue a few weeks ago, try restarting the web server (service apache2 restart) and re-creating the post.php (re-run SET and all config commands in it), this fixed it when I had this problem

This was my first time too :D

Sounds good thank you. I will give it a try
