**Installation method / source: How To Install And Configure OpenVAS On Ubuntu 20.04 - Eldernode
I was following along to a tutorial, as listed above, to install and setup GVM. I got about half way when I get to this line:
echo “db_address = /run/redis-openvas/redis.sock” > /opt/gvm/etc/openvas/openvas.conf
This complains that openvas.conf doesn’t exist. Sure enough, after searching the entire drive for that name, it’s not there. As a matter of fact, /opt/gvm/etc doesn’t exist at all. I’ve tried a few different tutorials, and I’m running into the same issue.
