    installed kali linux and used wpscan but got an error!

    ok so i have installed kali linux and i used wpscan to test if i could hack my wordpress site, so i used enumerate u from the help commands and i found my username but now i have to crack the password. So i tried to input the command to crack the password for admin name

    -Do wordlist password brute force on the 'admin' username only ...

    ruby /usr/bin/wpscan --url www.my site.com --wordlist darkc0de.lst --username my admin name

    but i get an error saying there is no such file or directory? i have downloaded a wordlist called darkc0de.lst and i have saved it on desktop but it cant finde the wordlist!
    i tried to change the end of the name to txt but it still cant finde the wordlist, so i think i have to input the wordlist in the same directory as wpscan is in bu i cant finde usr/bin/wpscan? i have tried everything.

    and yes i am a newbie and i want some help because i am a widnows user and linux is very hard for me but i am eager to learn...

    so please if somebody can help me with my dilemma i would appreciate it very much, when i saw that it found my username i god thirsty to learn more about security.

    hi
    this is NOT the right solution(i think for kali) but it works ....!!!!!

    http://wpscan.org/
    Installing on Debian/Ubuntu:

    sudo apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev libopenssl-ruby libxml2 libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev ruby-dev

    git clone https://github.com/wpscanteam/wpscan.git

    cd wpscan

    sudo gem install bundler && bundle install --without test development

    ./wpscan.rb ................................................

    does somebody know where i can get a quality passwordlist so that i can brute force? the wordlist that i have from darkc0de.lst is not giving any results.

    I'm sorry .. I realized that it gave you a wpscan error!

    I'm not expert of wordlist but if you want to take a look:

    Quoting official Kali documentation, If you are looking for a Linux distribution to learn the basics of Linux and need a good starting point, Kali Linux is not the ideal distribution for you. You may want to begin with Ubuntu or Debian instead.

    if you did an installation, just out of the box.

    instead of using the command ruby ./wpscan -- url http://www.test.com
    or ruby usr/bin/wpscan -- url http://www.test.com

    use just wpscan -- url http://www.test.com

    Works like a charm
