Thanks, the problem now becomes:

*Error (p)connecting to DB : *snort at ...274...:3306

Check the DB connection variables in /acid_conf.php/

               = $alert_dbname   : MySQL database name where the alerts are stored 
               = $alert_host     : host where the database is stored
               = $alert_port     : port where the database is stored
               = $alert_user     : username into the database
               = $alert_password : password for the username

*Database ERROR:*Access denied for user: 'root at ...274...' (Using 
password: YES)

The root user can access mysql with command "mysql -u root -p"
I don't know why I can't login with root?
