1.2 Install package Squid gid errors



  • I checked the etc/group but I do not see a group called proxy but one called squid … can anybody help ?

    Nov 19 03:53:09 php: : SQUID is installed but not started. Not installing redirect rules.

    Nov 19 03:53:04 squid[26303]: getgrnam failed to find groupid for effective group 'proxy'



  • If the box isn't in production and/or you can reboot it:
    Try uninstalling the squid package, reboot, reinstall squid package, reboot, then give it a try.



  • Box is production

    From what I gather the proxy group does not exist, it may be because this was not a fresh install..

    So how do I proceed ?
