Re: Barnyard2 startup error: Snort not compiled to use mysql but --with-mysql option invalid

Snort's support to directly write to a database is no longer an option since Snort 2.9.2, if I recall correctly.

Instead, you compile MySQL support with Barnyard2:

./configure --with-mysql --with-mysql-libraries=<path to the mysql libs>

In Snort, you would use unified2 as an output plugin to write unified2 logs and have Barnyard2 parse these into the 
database. In the docs section on Snort's website you will find step by step documentation on how to do that on SuSE, 
12.x as well as other OSs.

Subject: [Snort-users] Barnyard2 startup error: Snort not compiled to use mysql but --with-mysql option invalid

hello:

We have a working install of Snort 2.9.4.5 on SuSE 12.2 that logs fine but we need to use Barnyard2 and send this data 
to mysql.  We did not know of any manual steps or added options being required to compile Snort for mysql use with 
barnyard.  When we start barnyard2 for use with Snort, mysql and Snorby we get the "snort not compiled for use with 
mysql" errors and barnyard2 fatals out.

We found some options online for snort compiling that also did not work or: ./configure --with-mysql

when trying that option or several versions of it the compile runs to the end but then fails at this step and flags it 
as an  invalid option.

Can anyone tell us what the correct command and options are please to compile Snort and Barnyard to use mysql?

Thanks!

Hi

Im pulling my hair out on this problem

I have installed Snort on Ubunutu 12.04 , 2 nics eth0 used for
management eth1 is receiving traffic that is coming into our firewall
via SPAN on the switch

0 byte u2 files mean no alerts happened.  Have you set something like:

output alert_fast: snortalert.fast

in your snort.conf to verify that you're getting alerts at all?
