Current version is 22.214.171.124, you should update.

If your output method is DB, then your output method is not set to log to disk.
Keep in mind, while you are upgrading, that direct-to-db output has been removed from newer versions of Snort (started in 126.96.36.199), so you need to use barnyard2 to insert into the DB.
