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
(e.g.,
rpm,
or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the
necessary
'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
install.

See the database documentation for cursory details
(doc/README.database).
and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation.
