Installed Snort on RedHat 9 along with Apache, SSL, PHP, MySQL and Acid 
per Patrick Harper's instructions from www.InternetSecurityGuru.com.
Everything went smooth but after I completed the whole process, Acid would 
not display any alerts so I ran "snort ?c /etc/snort/snort.conf" to see 
what's causing the problem and the error that got displayed was: 
ERROR: Undefined variable name: (/etc/snort/snort.conf:458):
Fatal Error, Quitting..

I went to snort.conf and on line 458 I have the following line that is 
there to log to MySQL database (it's the only one that's uncommented):
output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=mypassword dbname=snort 

Everything looks correct to me and for the life of me I can't figure out 
why snort is choking on it.
Any ideas?
