I am getting an error with the following configuration line 

"output log_database: mysql, dbname=snort host=localhost user=root"

[root at ...170... /root]# snort  -i eth0  -c 07122kany.rules

log_database: Database type is mysql
log_database: Database name is snort
log_database: Host set to localhost
log_database: User set to root
Problem obtaining SENSOR ID (sid) from mysql->snort->event

If I remove that line snort works fine, the database access is 
correctly setup 

Any pointers ?
