check the parameters you have set for database connectivity in
snort.conf. it should work if it has proper rights for the database.

Subject: [Snort-users] FW: MySQL error

I just recompiled snort with mysql support and changed the conf.
However, I am getting an access error.

database: compiled support for ( mysql)
database: configured to use mysql
database:         user = snortdba
database: password is set
database: database name = snort
database:          host =
database:          port = 3306
database:   sensor name =
ERROR: database: mysql_error: Access denied for user:
'snortdba at ...9375...' (Using password: YES) ...

now this works:
# mysql -u snortdba -h -p
Enter password: xxxxx

So I know that I am using the right username/password.  Snortdba has
select, insert, update, delete rights on the snort database.

I checked the archives and haven't found anything yet.  Most of them are
from people with the wrong username/password.
