Hi,

Newbie trying to setup snort on ubuntu 12.04.  Proving to be a disaster.

apt-get install snort snort-mysql

sudo snort -Tc snort.conf

what is wrong with this line?
output database: log, mysql, user=root password=test test dbname=snort
host=localhost

How to I translate the below into English?





sudo service snort restart
 * Starting Network Intrusion Detection System

!! WARNING: The database output plugins are considered deprecated as
!!          of Snort 2.9.2 and will be removed in Snort 2.9.3.
!!          The recommended approach to logging is to use unified2 with
!!          barnyard2 or similar.

database: must enter database name in configuration file


USAGE: database plugin

 output database: [log | alert], [type of database], [parameter list]

 [log | alert] selects whether the plugin will use the alert or
 log facility.

 For the first argument, you must supply the type of database.
 The possible values are mysql, postgresql, odbc, oracle and
 mssql
 The parameter list consists of key value pairs. The proper
 format is a list of key=value pairs each separated a space.

 The only parameter that is absolutely necessary is "dbname".
 All other parameters are optional but may be necessary
 depending on how you have configured your RDBMS.

 dbname - the name of the database you are connecting to

 host - the host the RDBMS is on

 port - the port number the RDBMS is listening on

 user - connect to the database as this user

 password - the password for given user

 sensor_name - specify your own name for this snort sensor. If you
        do not specify a name one will be generated automatically

 encoding - specify a data encoding type (hex, base64, or ascii)

 detail - specify a detail level (full or fast)

 ignore_bpf - specify if you want to ignore the BPF part for a sensor

              definition (yes or no, no is default)

 FOR EXAMPLE:
 The configuration I am currently using is MySQL with the database
 name of "snort". The user "snortusr at ...274..." has INSERT and SELECT
 privileges on the "snort" database and does not require a password.
 The following line enables snort to log to this database.

 output database: log, mysql, dbname=snort user=snortusr host=localhost

ERROR:
Fatal Error, Quitting..
