I am a newbie. I have installed mysql while I was installing linux on my machine. I was trying to install snort with mysql support so that I can capture all the alerts from snort into mysql database and later generate graphs etc.
I think I did not complie snort with mysql options as the default installtion of mysql (when installing with Linux) was not in the /usr/local/mysql folder. So in order to recomplie snort with mysql , without uninstalling mysql from my machine, I downloaded the source code of mysql and complied and installed it.
I am not sure what's happening now. Nothing seems to work. Can you please help me ? Please suggest what can be done.
Also initial version of mysql only logs on with root and mysql -p command. I tried granting user named snort all privilleges but is not working ?
Can I restart from scratch by uninstalling eveything ? Please help.
Thanks a lot.
