This is probably something really stupid, but I gotta ask anyway. Just installed ACID (9.6b19) and MySQL (3.23.36). Went through the installation instructions in Snort's readme.database, and the ACID installation instructions. I think I did everything right.
When trying to run acid_main.php thru a browser, I'm getting the following error:
Error (p)connecting to DB : snort at ...274...:3306
Check the DB connection variables in acid_conf.php
= $alert_dbname : MySQL database name where the alerts are stored
= $alert_host : host where the database is stored
= $alert_port : port where the database is stored
= $alert_user : username into the database
= $alert_password : password for the username
Database ERROR:Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
Any idea what's wrong?
