Look in /var/log/snort for an alert file. If it is there then you have a
db connection problem.  Double check the snort.conf output line and the
acid_conf.php to make sure that everything is correct.  Is mysql

I am very new to snort and I am need some help on getting it running
correctly.  It appears that snort is running but not accumulating
alerts. I followed the SNORT, PHP, Apache, MySQL and ACID install guide
by Patrick Harper.

Here is what I get when I run ps -ef | grep snort  /usr/local/bin/snort
-c /etc/snort/snort.conf -I eth0 -g snort -D

When I run a nmap scan on the ip address it does not generate any

This is a system set up on a local LAN attached to a hub.  

I have even run sneeze and received no alerts.

Any help would be appreciated.
