Did you enter a different password for the snort user and the root user
in mysql? (these are different then the system accounts)  log onto mysql
(mysql -u root -p) and re-enter the line for giving the snort user a
password if you can't get it working.

I am using your write up for the Redhat installation and I followed it
exactly.  I commented out that particular line and I get this message 

"Error: database: mysql_error. Access Denied for use: snort at ...274...
(using password: YES)"

When I run "snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf"

If I am using the wrong password is there a way to reset this.
