does your password have characters like $%&#! in it?  I ran into this
earlier this week with someone.

Subject: [Snort-users] ERROR: Undefined variable name

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?
