[Snort-users] Snort not connecting to MySQL

None.  Snort in and of itself is working.  But after reviewing a bunch
of tcpdump data it looks as if snort isnt even trying to connect to the
mysql database.  This is baffling me because snort isnt even outputting
any errors (anywhere that i know to look) about mysql connections or
anything of that nature.  Anyone have any ideas on where i should start
looking on the snort machine to figure out what is wrong here?
