Have you checked you have put the correct lines in the
snort.conf file so it logs to the database. If you've done so
then you should use ethereal to see what traffic is being
sent from snort to the database and you can also see the logs
to find any error messages regarding the connection with the
database. You can also check with something like phpMyAdmin
if the mysql tables are being loaded with data, if the tables
have data and it's not shown in Acid then it's an Acid
configuration problem. You should follow the Acid documentation
instructions step by step.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
                -- Jack Kerouac, "On the Road"
