> Hi,
> 
> I can't seem to get snort to start at boot up.
> 
> I'm current using the following:
> 
> Linux 2.4.18
> MySQL 3.23.39
> Snort 1.8.6
> 
> I created two startup scripts,  /etc/rc.mysqld and /etc/rc.snortd.
> I then run /etc/rc.mysqld first and then /etc/rc.snortd by making a call
> from
> /etc/rc.local. MySQL starts up fine, but snort does not. When I looked at
> the
> system logs I found the following error:
> 
> snort: FATAL ERROR: database: mysql_error: Can't connect to local MySQL
> server
> through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
> 
> Now this is the part I can't figure out. If I call /etc/rc.snortd after
> logging in, snort starts up fine. Everything runs great, snort is logging to
> MySQL, and I can analyse the packets with ACID. Maybe I'm missing
> something... any ideas?
