I had a similar problem, but I think I got it figured out. I sent an
email to OA, here is the relevant portion:

I think I have it working. As your documentation is kind of skimpy, I'll
outline my trouble shooting steps. I ran the ids_background.pl file
without backgrounding it so I could see the errors. It was complaining
about an invalid function, mysql_connect();. Since my website is written
in php, I knew it was available. I figured php as a cgi must have it's
own php.ini. It did. I added "extention=mysql.so" to it and all was
right with the world.
A few note worth items about Debian:
There isn't a /usr/bin/php on some installs. There is a /usr/bin/php4. I
had to make a symlynk (ln -s /usr/bin/php /usr/bin/php4).
PHP is install as a mod (mod_php4) and a cgi. Their php.ini files are
/etc/php4/apache/php.ini and /etc/php4/cgi/php.ini respectively.

You must run the two perl scripts that come bundled with the package.

./apps/ids_background.pl > /dev/null &
./apps/ids_misc.pl > /dev/null &

You must run them from your install directory.

Oh, by the way...Aanval is shaping up nicely...for those interested

	Hello,

	I tried to install this program, but in the readme.txt, it tells
you to
add some tables to your snort database, But, it have a table with the
same name of snort, so when you try to add it, mysql complains about a
table with same name (signature).
	The problem that you pointed is happening 'cause you didn't
created the
tables. Look in where/is/openAnval/db/ .

Regards,
Alejandro Flores
