[Snort-users] Problem connecting to local mysql with new acid and new snort

I have had snort 1.7, and acid-0.9.6b8 running nicely on an apache 1.3.19
server with mysql 3.23.37 (built from source) on RH Linux 7.0. It worked
well, but was obviously out of date :-)
So I upgraded to snort-stable as of yesterday, and latest acid (0.9.6b20),
and replaced mysql binaries with the RH mysql 3.23.36 from rpms. Now, I can
not connect to the db in the usual way, i.e., webserver/acid/acid_main.php.
I receive the following error message:
Warning: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/tmp/mysql.sock' (111) in /var/www/html/acid/adodb-mysql.inc.php on line 81
I have checked the permissions, etc. on the mysql db, and verified that I
can telnet to it on port 3306. I.e. :
telnet localhost 3306
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
I edited acid_conf.php to show the following (user and pw obfuscated) but
which in reality match the grant statement issued to mysql:
$alert_dbname = "snort";
$alert_host = "localhost.localdomain";
$alert_port = "";
$alert_user = "xxxxx";
$alert_password = "yyyyyy";
mysql use snort; show tables shows that create_mysql has inserted the
correct tables and an ls of the path to db shows the correct files.
Now, I am quite puzzled.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
