Nope.  In very simplistic terms:

  1. Configure snort to log to MySQL
  2. Configure your DB with the proper snort DB schema
  3. Give the "snort" user (whatever you may chose to call it) permissions 
     to write to the snort DB you configured in #2.
  4. Let 'er rip.

If you're asking why your setup doesn't work the way you expect, we're 
going to need a bit more information to go on :)
