I installed snort-stable with MySQL support.

When I try to use snort-stable like:

#/opt/snort/bin/snort -c /opt/snort/rules/snort.conf -i le0
Log directory = /var/log/snort

database:   sensor name = x.x.x.x
database: mysql_error: Access denied for user: 'root at ...274...' (Using password: YES)
Fatal Error, Quitting..

output database: log, mysql, user=root password=xyz0507$ dbname=snort host=localhost

I guess problem with mysql password. Is it possible to use special
character like "$" or "#" in password?

Any suggestion?
