Verify this :

Mysql (just after install)===>

bash-2.05# mysql -u root -p

Password for root local access :

mysql> set password for 'root'@'localhost' = password('your_root_password');

Delete unnecessary database :

mysql> drop database test

Delete the anonymous access :

mysql> connect mysql
mysql> delete from user where user="";
mysql> delete from db where user="";
mysql> exit

Test =

bash-2.05# ln -s /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql /usr/bin/mysql
bash-2.05# mysql -u snort -p
mysql> show databases;
+------------------+
| Database |
+------------------+
| mysql
+------------------+
1 row in set (0.02 sec)
mysql> connect mysql
mysql> exit

Snort ===>

Create a database for snort :

bash-2.05# ln -s /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql /usr/local/bin/mysql
bash-2.05# mysql -u root -p
mysql> create database snort;
mysql> source /download/snort-2.0.0/contrib/create_mysql

Configure the good rights for this new database :

mysql> connect snort
mysql> grant CREATE,INSERT,SELECT,DELETE,UPDATE on snort.* to snort;
mysql> grant CREATE,INSERT,SELECT,DELETE,UPDATE on snort.* to 
snort at ...274...;

Create the user "snort" in the database "mysql" :

mysql> connect mysql
mysql> set password for 'snort'@'localhost' = 
password('your_snort_password');
mysql> set password for 'snort'@'%' = password('your_snort_password');
mysql> flush privileges;

Test  =

mysql> connect snort
mysql> show tables;
