Hi all.

After trying to run the archivePlus script to archive old stuff from my 
snort database, I've gotten stuck on the following error:
' (1). Pausing before retrying.: Unknown MySQL Server Host 'localhost

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to why this doesn't work?  
I can't understand this, I've set all the correct permissions in mysql 
and have actually used acid to initialize and create the tables in my 
new database called 'archive'.  The acid_conf.php configuration file 
uses 'localhost' as the server host and works fine.

Any insight?
