[Snort-users] snort and puresecure problem

i am running puresecure 1.6, i have couple of slave sensors logging into a
central mysql database . The server that runs the master sensor also runs
mysql, apache and a couple of slave sensors. altogether i have about 9
sensors logging to a central database. Things have been running fine for
about  4 months now. Recently i had to reboot one of the servers that runs
the slave sensors, and since then i have been getting these errors on all
sensors that runs on that server "snort error: error while trying to start
snort" and when i check the server using ps i see that snort was not running
but the the puresecure client deamon was, i have stopped and started the
deamon using psd options, but it has not  worked. when i start snort
independtly, ps shows it as running but for some reason it does not log to
the database. my question is how do i fix this problem so that psd ( which
is the puresecure deamon process) starts snort as it's suppose too. Any help
would be appreciated.
