i suspect that you cannot do this any more... direct logging to databases has 
been (or will be) removed... the apparent way to do this now is to feed snort's 
output to barnyard2... AFAICT, the biggest and main achievement of this change 
is to enable snort to operate more on the goal of sniffing the traffic while not 
loosing any (or as much) and snort not having to deal with talking to some 
database server that may or may not be online or fast enough to accept 
everything that snort may be outputting...
