[Snort-users] Snort database problem

You must first create the database.  The 'create_mysql' script will
create the tables, but the db must already exist.

Do this:

echo "CREATE DATABASE snort" | /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root -p

Then run the command below, and all should be well.  Be sure to run the
appropriate GRANTs for the user/sensor that is sending the alerts.

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort database problem

Hello people, i had snort running fine until yesterday when i decided to
clear all the tables rows ... whenever i wanted to start snort some
error message came up so ... i decided to delete the snort database ...

now i want to create again that database with the following command (the
same command i've used before): 

 < ./contrib/create_mysql snort But i get this error:

ERROR 1049: Unknown database "snort"

Can anyone give me a clue of what is going on?
