Set up barnyard2 and snorby to use the same database.

see config files


output database: log, mysql, user=root password=support dbname=snorby host=

snorby: &snorby
  adapter: mysql
  username: root
  password: "support" # Example: password: "s3cr3tsauce"
  host: localhost

  database: snorby
  <<: *snorby

  database: snorby
  <<: *snorby

  database: snorby
  <<: *snorby

Do not create database, start mysql, then start snorby

        Cd /var/www/html/snorby-2.6.2/
        bundle exec rails server -e production -d

This will create database and schema

i'll have to let someone else step in at this point and assist further... i'm glad that i was able to point you in the proper direction though :)
