how do i start snort as daemon service in debian, i tried to do it this way

" [Unit]
Description=Snort NIDS Daemon
After=syslog.target network.target

Execstart=/usr/local/bin/snort -q -u snort -g snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i wlan0

WantedBy=multi-user.target "

each time i tried to run the service i get this error " Failed to restart snort.service: Unit snort.service has a bad unit file setting.
See system logs and 'systemctl status snort.service' for details."

How do i fix that?
