Burp Suite is a popular web application security testing tool developed by PortSwigger. It is widely used by security professionals and penetration testers to identify and fix vulnerabilities in web applications. Burp Suite provides various features for scanning, intercepting, and manipulating web traffic, as well as for analyzing the security of web applications.
To install Burp Suite on an Ubuntu server, you can follow these steps:
1. Download Burp Suite: Visit the PortSwigger website and download the appropriate version of Burp Suite Community Edition for Linux.
2. Extract the Archive: Once the download is complete, navigate to the directory where the downloaded file is located. Open a terminal and use the following command to extract the archive:
tar -xvf burpsuite_community_linux_vX_X_X.tar.gz
Replace "burpsuite_community_linux_vX_X_X.tar.gz" with the actual name of the downloaded file.
3. Move the Directory: Move the extracted Burp Suite directory to a suitable location. You can use the mv command to achieve this. For example:
sudo mv burpsuite_community /opt/
This will move the Burp Suite directory to the "/opt/" directory. Adjust the destination path as per your preference.
4. Create a Shortcut (Optional): To create a shortcut for Burp Suite, you can create a symbolic link in the "/usr/local/bin/" directory. Use the following command:
sudo ln -s /opt/burpsuite_community/burpsuite_community /usr/local/bin/burpsuite
This allows you to launch Burp Suite by typing "burpsuite" in the terminal.
5. Run Burp Suite: To start Burp Suite, navigate to the Burp Suite directory and execute the "burpsuite_community" file. Use the following command:
cd /opt/burpsuite_community/ ./burpsuite_community
Burp Suite should now launch and be ready for use.
It's worth noting that these instructions are specifically for installing Burp Suite Community Edition on an Ubuntu server. If you're using a different version of Burp Suite or a different Linux distribution, the steps may vary slightly. Additionally, make sure to check the official documentation or the PortSwigger website for the latest installation instructions and any specific requirements.
