Hello Shankar,
      First tell about your database configuration.I guess that u might have
not commented the (/etc/snort/snort.conf:453 line,since it is used for
enabling log alerts to syslog.U should comment this line,if u want to enable
the databes loggging,since that line of the config file specifies to alert
the output of logs to syslog.

if u r using databes logging ,then ur snort.conf should have line as,
for example,output database: log, mysql, dbname=snort user=root
host=localhost password=kovai
For better understanding,go to directory /src/doc,See the README.database
file for more information about configuring and using this plugin.
