You don't mention whether MySQL by itself works, if you try this:
mysql -u snort -h bugzilla.cnnic.net.cn -p12345678 snort
 
Does it log you in?
 
Also in the ruletype redalert { ... } section you are missing the password.

Subject: [Snort-users] error with mysql



Hi,all

   I installed snort-1.8.3 with mysql-8.23 on linux 8, but I encountered a
problem when
trying the following command    

   /opt/ids/bin/snort -c /opt/ids/etc/snort.d/snort.conf

Log directory = /var/log/snort

Fatal Error, Quitting..


  HERE IS PART OF THE CONFIGURE FILE OF SNORT

output database: log, mysql, user=snort dbname=snort
host=bugzilla.cnnic.net.cn password=12345678

ruletype redalert
 {
   type alert
   output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
   output database: log, mysql, user=snort dbname=snort host=bugzilla.cnnic.
net.cn
 }

  I CHANGED THE PASSWORD ABOVE TO AN INCORRECT ONE, ANT IT SAYS:
    
database: mysql_error: Access denied for user: 'snort at ...9235...'
<mailto:'snort at ...9235...'>  (Using password: YES)

  WHY IT SAYS *NO* AT FIRST???

  AS TO SAY MYSQL, I CREATED THE DATABASE AND TABLES WITH THE GUIDE OF SNORT
AND DID THE FOLLOWING:

mysql> use snort;
Database changed
mysql> GRANT all PRIVILEGES ON snort.* to snort at ...9235...
<mailto:snort at ...9235...>  IDENTIFIED BY '12345678';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

  AT FIRST I ONLY GRANT INSERT AND SELECT TO SNORT,BUT THE PROBLEM STILL
EXISTS. SO I EXPANDED
ITS PRIVILEGES.

  HERE IS PART OF acid_conf.php

$alert_dbname   = "snort";
$alert_host     = "159.226.7.50";
$alert_port     = "3306";
$alert_user     = "snort";
$alert_password = "12345678";

/* Archive DB connection parameters */
$archive_dbname   = "snort_archive";
$archive_host     = "localhost";
$archive_port     = "";
$archive_user     = "root";
$archive_password = "mypassword";

  ANY SUGGESTIONS?

  THANKS A LOT.
