[Snort-users] Logging to /var/log/snort/alert AND mysql?

Hi, just looked over the FAQ & didn't see anything there.

With snort, I am running Guardian and another small script that mails me every
5 minutes if /var/log/snort/alert changes.  I've been reading about ACID for
the last few weeks, and finally made the effort to install apache, mysql, php
and ACID.

Running like a charm, with:

output database: alert, mysql, user=www dbname=snort host=localhost


I never used to bother with an output plugin before, so of course, my output
went to /var/log/snort/alert (Linux 2.2.14).  How can I still have that output
AND log to mysql/ACID?


/usr/local/bin/snort -de -D -i eth0 -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
