Glad you fixed you problem, but I am a little confused.  The sig_gid  
field is not part of the AG tables and the AG tables are not used by  
Snort?  You are right in saying that just editting the base_conf.php  
file does not create the database tables for you.  To do that you  
would need to import the SQL structures in BASE's sql directory.  But  
none of the stuff installed by BASE is used by Snort so they  
shouldn't have caused you an issue?
