MySQL Error in Intrusion Detection: Snort, MySQL exercise
I am trying to get the Intrusion detection exercise to work, and have reached a snag at the end of step 11.
The code: mysql -D snort -u root -p < /root/snorttmp/snort-184.108.40.206/schemas/create_mysql
produces the following output:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user '-root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
I did reset the mysql password to match what I set in the snort.conf file. A blank password produces the same output but with a password: NO change.
I do not know anything about setting up mysql.
