The major route to debugging Nikto requests is to use the
-Display with v (verbose) or d (debug). This will
output a vast amount of extra information to the screen, so it is
advised to redirect output to a file when using them.
If you need assistance with development or running Nikto, the Nikto-discuss mailing list can be an excellent resource and is an easy way to contact the developers and other knowledgeable users. For more information on the maling list, including archives and subscription options, please see http://cirt.net/nikto-discuss.
