[Snort-users] Mysql 101b

Yeah, I figured it out.  I can be a dumb ass sometimes.  FYI, I had the
following uncommented in my snort.conf file:

# This example will create a rule type that will log to syslog
# and a mysql database.
# ruletype redalert
# {
#   type alert
#   output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
#   output database: log, mysql, user=root dbname=snort host=localhost
# }

By the way, I got your response before my question was posted to the
database.  I have been getting multiple copies of people's e-mails.
Snort-users at ...7270... and
snort-users-admin at lists.sourceforge.net 

Might want to tell folks to e-mail to one list.  I assumes snort-users
are for usual questions, where snort-admin is for the administrator (s)
of the user group or for code tweaks?

This looks like your trying to config usage of mySQL twice??? The first
instance looks ok (database: password is set), but the repeat of this
message doesn't show that the password is set. Check your config file
for 2 lines relating to mySQL.

HTH,
John

Still having issues with mysql.  It should for root; I have the password
set properly in my snort.conf file. I had this once before when I first
set up ACID.  When will I learn to document?? I'm going to write it down
this time. 
Thanks in advance for help, here is the error: 
[root at ...7225... root]# snort -U -d -c /root/.snortrc/snort.conf
