I followed the instructions of the setup manual one by one posted on
snort.org (at least I believe I did so) to setup Snort on Fedora core
But after setting up ACID and testing
I get the following error
Error (p)connecting to DB : snort at ...274...
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:Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
I checked to see if mysql was running with netstat and I checked to
see if I could login to mysql as "snort" user. Both resulted positive.
I checked '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' to see if the file was created
and it was there, also the permission were 777 so to me looked fine.
Do you have any suggestions what the problem might be ?
