    Hello there,

    I'm assuming you ran it from source, if so, can you please paste the steps you followed to set it up along with the branch you checked out?

    Hi Tasos,

    thanks for immediate response

    When I ran bundle install I got problem with libv8 and ruby racer so I changed the gemfile
    gem 'libv8', '~>' gem 'therubyracer', '0.12.1', platforms: :ruby Then I got problem pg then
    then uninstall pg and run
    sudo ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" gem install pg then bundle was installed fine.
    rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=development
    rails s

    No worries.

    First off, here are some up-to-date instructions on working with the source: https://github.com/Arachni/arachni-ui-web/tree/framework-v1.1#linux...

    That's for the upcoming Framework v1.1 release branch, so if you don't mind I'd appreciate it if you tested it and provided feedback, that'll help speed the release process quite a bit -- ignore the Windows instructions for now.

    Also, is there a reason that you're working with the source and not using the official self-contained packages?
    Like I said, I could use some v1.1 testers right now, but in general you better stick to the packages -- unless you really need an unreleased fix or feature or something.

    Ok Thanks....

    There is nothing important not using official self-contained package.
