Config.xml has configs from removed packages



  • When I open a saved Config file in word I still see settings listed from packages I have UNinstalled. Is this normal?


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Yes, that is normal. Otherwise when you reinstall a package you'd lose all its settings.



  • Thanks for the reply.
    Now what would cause Squid to have multiple some the same some different entry's for the cache management part of the config ?


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Sometimes it gets a single <config>entry in there which causes issues. Delete the entire cache management bit from the config and it's fine. (Download a backup, edit it out, and restore)

    I can't reliably reproduce it so I haven't found a way to test/fix it either, unfortunately.</config>



  • Thanks ,
    That is what I have been doing, I edit out all the squid configurations and upload the file. After witch the system re-installs all the packages when it reboots. I find in my case that rebooting the system as soon as the packages re-install is a must. It only bothers Squid all the rest are fine. I also  deleted Squid's own configs from shell and restarted because they would not let me change the settings.
