Check the snort-users archives. Someone not to long ago was trying the same thing without much success, but he did get things working. Also in response to that someone else (sorry I don't recall the authors name) took some existing documentation and altered it to assist in this type of setup. 

Hope this helps to point you in the right direction.

Subject: [Snort-users] NO output from Snort to MySql

I have a Sensor that has been built using Fedora Core 1.

I'm trying to get it to output it's information to a MySql database on
another system.

Snort 2.1.0, MySql Client were installed from rpm's on the Previously
working sensor image, (I'm trying to update it).

Upgraded the packages installed using YUM.
Installed the Snort 2.1.3 and Snort-Mysql 2.1.3 from Snort.org.

I'm getting alert generation but nothing added to the database, on the
other server.

I switched to Unified output and it generates the files but when I start
Barnyard I get the following error.

[root at ...12532... bin]# ./barnyard -c /etc/snort/barnyard.conf -g
/etc/snort/gen-msg.map -s /etc/snort/sid-msg.map -d /var/log/snort -f
snort.log -w /var/log/snort/bylog.waldo
Barnyard Version 0.2.0 (Build 32)
Opened spool file '/var/log/snort/snort.log.1097273924'
ERROR: No input plugin found for magic: a1b2c3d4
Fatal Error, Quitting..

The Snort Configuration is now back to trying to connect to the other
server with no luck.

Ideas on where to look would be appreciated.

This has been very frustrating as I tried to do a fresh image install
first, installing the Mysql, Snort and everything else from source and I
couldn't get Snort to recognize that it had been compiled with the MySql
