It looks like you are trying to use an mssql database.  Check your
snort.conf file

database: 'mssql' support is not compiled into this build of snort

ERROR: If this build of snort was obtained as a binary distribution
or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the
'mssql' support.

If this build of snort was compiled by you, then re-run the
the ./configure script using the '--with-mssql' switch.
For non-standard installations of a database, the '--with-mssql=DIR'
syntax may need to be used to specify the base directory of the DB

See the database documentation for cursory details
and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation.
