What are the right permissions… squidGuard.log



  • 2.3.1-RELEASE-p5 (amd64)

    FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p3
    squid: 0.4.21  
    squidGuard: 1.14_3

    Overall "problem" is when I'm looking at Package / Squid / Monitor (squid_monitor.php) then table section for Squid Cache Table is empty with the exception of multiple lines of Date/Time of 31.12.1969 16:00:00.  I thought at one time that was showing data.  So I looked at /var/squid/logs/(access.log and cache.log) and within the cache.log top most line reads

    (squidGuard): can't write to logfile /var/log/squidGuard/squidGuard.log

    .

    Looking at the permissions of /var/log/squidGuard/  I have group: squid [100] and owner: squid [100] with 0755
    Looking at the permissions of /var/log/squidGuard/squidGuard.log I have group: squid [100] and owner: root [0] with 0644 (had to add \ else message board thought I was starting a bullet list)

    Can I get anyone to confirm for me that is the right/wrong permission on that *.log file?  I'm thinking it ought to be squid/squid but not sure.

    Thx



  • I think you probably meant to post this question in the Cache/Proxy sub-forum and not the IDS/IPS sub-forum.  Perhaps you can get a moderator to move it for you.
