At the mysql CMD prompt type:

grant INSERT,SELECT,UPDATE,DELETE,CREATE on snort.* to <username>@localhost
identified by '<password>';


Try it out:

Exit the MySQL command, and type:

mysql -u <username> -p<password>

  I have tried a lot to get access to the report generated after running the
Snort IDS. I have performed all the configuration steps given in the Snort
installation guide293. But still I am getting the error " Access denied for
user 'snort'@'localhost' (using password: YES) ". Please, help me in this
