I have a setup of snort / mysql / apache and base on a fresh load of ubuntu server.
I complied snort and for some reason I do not have a init.d script. I found one online and and it works if I run it /etc/init.d/snort start or if i run it from /etc/rc2.d/snort start
But it will not load on boot and i don't know why, i also tried to add the command to the rc.local and it still will not show as a running process from a fresh boot. If I log in and run snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf or the init script from either /etc/init.d or rc2/3/4/5/ it will start up.
