    I installed snort but it doesnt seem to be logging anything.

    I run
    snort -c snort.conf -i eth0 -D

    But nothing gets logged:
    mysql> use snort_db
    Reading table information for completion of table and column names
    You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

    Database changed
    mysql> select * from event;
    Empty set (0.00 sec)

    I followed the instructions here:

    This is what snort.conf reads
    # database: log to a variety of databases
    # ---------------------------------------
    # See the README.database file for more information about configuring
    # and using this plugin.
    output database: log, mysql, user=snort_snort password=snortpassword dbname=snort_db host=localhost
    # output database: alert, postgresql, user=snort dbname=snort
    # output database: log, odbc, user=snort dbname=snort
    # output database: log, mssql, dbname=snort user=snort password=test
    # output database: log, oracle, dbname=snort user=snort password=test

    I have verified snort is running:
    root@server [~/snort-2.2.0/etc]# ps -e | grep snort
    25685 ? 00:00:00 snort

    Got any tips?
