    Hi,

    I have followed the steps mentioned in this
    http://www.howtoforge.com/intrusion-detection-with-snort-mysql-apache2-on-ubuntu-7.10
    till 12. Time to test Snort
    and when i run the test i get this

    Initializing Network Interface eth1
    Decoding Ethernet on interface eth1
    database: compiled support for ( )
    database: configured to use mysql
    database: 'mysql' support is not compiled into this build of snort

    ERROR: If this build of snort was obtained as a binary distribution (e.g., rpm,
    or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the necessary
    'mysql' support.

    If this build of snort was compiled by you, then re-run the
    the ./configure script using the '--with-mysql' switch.
    For non-standard installations of a database, the '--with-mysql=DIR'
    syntax may need to be used to specify the base directory of the DB install.

    See the database documentation for cursory details (doc/README.database).
    and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation.
    Fatal Error, Quitting..

    i have compiled the latest version of snort available i.e v2.8.0.1 with the switches mentioned in the tutorial.i did nt miss any step or encounterd any errors till that step.how should i go about furthur....?


    Thank You,
    Frk

    Did you see any errors when you ran
    Code:
    ./configure -enable-dynamicplugin --with-mysql
    ?

    I have'nt got any errors with that.its only when i run to test snort i get it.do i need to use or mention any specific directory with the switch --with-mysql=DIR.

    No, not if configure didn't report any errors...

    Do you have libmysqlclient15-dev and php5-mysql installed?
