From /usr/share/doc/initscripts-8.45.7/sysconfig.txt

    No longer supported:
     PROMISC=yes|no (enable or disable promiscuous mode)
     ALLMULTI=yes|no (enable or disable all-multicast mode)

     To properly set these, use the packet socket interface.

Are you starting snort or snort-mysql as it says in the script? If
you are using snort-mysql then you are going to want to change the
start order so that snort-mysql starts after mysql.

# chkconfig: 2345 40 60
to
# chkconfig: 2345 64 35

because mysql uses:
# chkconfig: - 64 36

You probably have an error message in the logs about the mysql
server not running or that snort could not connect to it.
