Ntopng install error on 2.3

  • Hey folks

    I am getting the following when I attempt to install the latest ntop package on 2.3:

    >>> Installing pfSense-pkg-ntopng...

    This box was running 2.2.x and I did have ntopng installed on it. I was under the impression that 2.3 removed any incompatible packages prior to upgrade but it appears that there were some remnants left behind that are causing it grief. What would be the best way to get ntopng to install on my box? It is running:

    2.3.2-RELEASE (amd64)
    built on Tue Jul 19 12:44:43 CDT 2016
    FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p5

    rm -rf /usr/local/share/ntopng/

    And then try again

  • That did the trick. Thanks.
