[Snort-users] Snort and SQL on PFsense

Ok...So I got the sql database setup and then in the barnyard tab I put 

output database: alert, mysql, dbname=SnortDB user=root host= password=******

Is this right?

Cause when I run it in the log files it gives a fatal error...

FATAL ERROR: database: ;mysql_error: Can't connect to MySQL server on' (61)

Barnyard2 is the tool that is used to send snort alerts to sql.

Snort doesn't do anything else with logs..
