Angry ACID Snort Mysql problems


I am trying to get acid to work with snort and mysql. I keep getting the following error. The install is on a red hat 9 box with mysql 4.0.16 installed. I have the DB set up correctly and eveyrthing else seems fine but I can't get past this error. Any help would be great.

Analysis Console for Intrusion Databases


Warning: mysql_pconnect(): Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /www/htdocs/adodb/drivers/adodb-mysql.inc.php on line 266

Error (p)connecting to DB : snort@localhost

Check the DB connection variables in acid_conf.php

= $alert_dbname : MySQL database name where the alerts are stored
= $alert_host : host where the database is stored
= $alert_port : port where the database is stored
= $alert_user : username into the database
= $alert_password : password for the username


Database ERROR:Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)

Thanks!!!!

Like it says: check the connection variables in acid_conf.php.
Try connecting with user/pass to the database from the commandline.
