You have to compile the snort binary just the same as you did
before for your mysql logging to your local host. You can
even use the same binary if you want. The option --with-mysql
it's needed to compile the support for mysql in snort, but
it doesn't depend on where you have the MySQL database.

What you have to change it's the line in snort.conf where you
have the localhost host for the database, and change localhost
for the new host where the MySQL database is.

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.
