    In step 2 of 5 in the BASE html setup, I'm getting this error:
    ADONewConnection: Unable to load database driver ''

    I'm following along with several centos snort/BASE how-tos.

    I've placed the adodb directory into /var/www
    I've placed the base directory into /var/www/html (chowned it and chmoded it as described)
    I've created the mysql database called snort and a mysql user called snort with grant access as described in the how-to's
    Imported the mysql schema as described.

    I can log into mysql with the snort user and list the snort tables.

    Everything looks in place - just cant get past the error to get to step 3.

    Can anybody get me past this hump?

    Thanks,
    Joe

      Do you have the php-mysql package installed?  Did you restart Apache after installing it?

        I indeed did not have php-mysql installed. I feel a little dumb but very happy to have BASE working. :)

        Thanks secureideas!
