i have snort up and running, however i want it to log to a mysql db, it 
looks like i've configured everything properly, the database plugin has 
been configured, and it still insists on logging everything to a text file

when i run snort from the console everything appears fine except for the 
fact that it is logging to a text file

this is what i get when i run it on the console

database: compiled support for ( mysql )
database: configured to use mysql
database:          user = snort
database: password is set
database: database name = snort
database:          host =
database:   sensor name =
database:     sensor id = 1
database: schema version = 105
database: using the "log" facility

am i missing something in the snort.conf file

any help will be greatly appreciated

many thanks
