[Snort-users] No Activity Occurring on ACID

When I run the select count (*) from event; command I get 0 which would appear
to indicate
the data is not being posted into the database. If that is the case, does that
mean there
is a permissions issue at work here, or something else?

What happens when you login as root to mysql and type:
