Going back to your original question about not logging to your database,
have you configured your output database?  On line 449 of the snort.conf

# database: log to a variety of databases
# ---------------------------------------
# See the README.database file for more information about configuring
# and using this plugin.
output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=<new_password>
dbname=snort host=localhost
# output database: alert, postgresql, user=snort dbname=snort
# output database: log, unixodbc, user=snort dbname=snort
# output database: log, mssql, dbname=snort user=snort password=test

See Page 14 of Patrick Harpers paper where it speaks of modifying the
snort.conf file.
