wpscan.rb LoadError

Recently, I installed the Kali Linux using the Virtual Images. I ran the WpScan application and run into the error ruby: No such file or directory -- ./wpscan.rb (LoadError)

Step to replicate:

1. Download the VM image from

2. In the VM open the WpScan application

3. in the terminal, type in ruby ./wpscan.rb --url, enter

4. error: ruby: No such file or directory -- ./wpscan.rb (LoadError)


On the terminal, enter the following command to download wpscan from the repository

   1. git clone

Note that this command will download the wpscan folder to the current directory. In my scenario, the new command look like

   2. ruby ./wpscan/wpscan.rb --url
