[Snort-users] Alerts showing twice.

 I had this same problem when I upgraded to the CVS version and recompiled,
and I'm not sure why.  I'm using MySQL logging, and it was working fine
before.

I solved it by remarking the "output database:log" statement and just using
"output database:alert" (originally I had both listed, outputing to MySQL).

Hope this helps...

Apologies for ^^^ that, I can't turn it off.

For some reason, alerts are getting logged twice in my alert log. I
don't know why. I'm running Snort 1.7 downloaded from the web site &
compiled from source. On Linux 2.2.18.

I've checked my configuration files, and they look ok, I can't see
duplicate rules. I'm using a modified version of the rule set on the web
site.

Sample included. Any ideas please? My alert logs are big enough.
