Somehwere before 1.7b8 someone switched off the ability to log to a
mysql database and to syslog. I kind of liked being able to do both
since my mysql server is not on the same machine as snort. Here is my
current command line for running snort and the snort.conf that is used:

/usr/local/bin/snort -D -d -c /etc/snort.rules

# This is the all encompassing rule set for snort.

# Revision 1.0

var INTERNAL xxx.xxx.xxx.224/28
var EXTERNAL !xxx.xxx.xxx.224/28
var HOME_NET xxx.xxx.xxx.224/28

preprocessor http_decode: 80 443 8080
preprocessor minfrag: 128
preprocessor portscan: $INTERNAL 3 5 /var/log/snort/portscan
preprocessor portscan-ignorehosts: $INTERNAL xxx.xxx.xxx.10 xxx.xxx.xxx.20
output database: log, mysql, dbname=snort user=mysnort host=myhost

include: /etc/snort/vision.conf
