[Snort-users] 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.
