[Snort-users] Acid shows sensors as 0

The line that configures snort to connect in snort.conf is uncommented
and is like this:

output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=******
 dbname=snort host=localhost

(******  is the password) and snort connects as snort user in Mysql
and db name in mysql is snort.

I have an empty event table.

mysql> select * from event;
Empty set (0.00 sec)

My question is: when you setup snort and acid, is it supposed to work
normally or do you have to configure other stuff and rules. My guess
is that it should work, even though it might need to be tuned. But
that's another story.

Thank you
