Hello guys,

I see the below e-mail is dated back on May 2004. I was running into the
same issue for quite a while but my approach was something like search the
byte_test word in the snort.conf file and delete it, then start snort.

Per AJ Butcher, I fetched the CVS distribution and still doesn't work.
Actually doesn't work anymore.
It gives back the message:
Database ERROR:Database ERROR:Unknown column 'id' in 'field list'

What could be wrong?

Thank you,

This is a FAQ. Use the Snortcenter2 fork from CVS:
