apologies if this is the wrong forum

i have a recent snort install and the i'm having major difficulty trying to
clear the alerts from BASE

i have over 3 million alerts as a result of the system being left
unattended for 2 weeks and a full ruleset applied

now BASE takes 20 mins to load the main page and times out if i try to
delete the main alerts

can i clear the alerts from mysql?

i've tried to alter the timeout on the base_conf.php file but it won't let
me - not even as root

thanks to anyone taking the time to answer or even reply
