[Snort-users] 1.7 and mysql problem

Another thing to watch out for: I wasn't seeing anything
go to the DB, so I looked at syslog and snort was putting
out a warning saying that the command line had overridden
the db plugin line in the config file.
I had the -A flag set. When I removed it, snort logged to
the db fine.

It sounds like you may have a configuration issue.  Linking in
oracle/mysql/postgres support into the same version of snort should not be
a problem.  What does your database configuration directive look like in
the snort configuration file (e.g. output database: log, mysql,
user=snort dbname=snort host=localhost)?
