Your problem isn't with the DB.  It's with your snort.conf on line 451.
In the default config file shipped with 2.0 line 451 is:

   # output database: log, mysql, user=root password=test dbname=db

Now, I'm going to assume you uncommented it to log to the DB.  If you did,
then something that you changed isn't right.  What does line look like in
your config?  Do you have all the parameters correctly set?  Make sure you
don't try to use a # or a $ in the user, password or DBname.  Those are
reseved symbols for the snort.conf parser.
