[Snort-users] Snort database problem

you need to re-create the snort database before you populate it:

/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root -p 

mysql>create database snort;

You can then set your permissions, then populate the database.

The problem here is you actually deleted the database, so it dont exist 
anymore ... hence the error: ERROR 1049: Unknown database "snort"
