the default rules directory is not the same as the one i am using. I need to change it in order to utilize the rules in my own directory

# Set the default rule path here to search for the files. # if not set, it will look at the current working dir default-rule-path: /etc/suricata/rules .... output truncated
sudo suricata -c /etc/suricata/suricata.yaml -i eth0 -D
