Squid - empty access.log
I searched the forum but didn't find a solution (or a similar problem), sorry if this has already been answered.
So basically my problem is that Squid always leaves the access.log file blank. >:(
The configuration specifies /var/squid/log as log directory and "enable logging is checked".
The permissions are the same as for cache.log (that is being written correctly) and I can't find a Squid error message in the logs.
So does anyone have an idea?
Also, is there a specific error log file for Squid, or is it just supposed to be /var/log/system.log?
It's been this way for a while and now people are asking me to fix it (I should have expected this would happen at some point), so any help is much welcome!
The most common way that can happen is if no traffic is actually passing through squid. :)
Are you sure the proxy is actually being used?
Well I tested some urls from the blacklist to make sure the proxy works, and the cache.log files seem to grow up (I'm not sure it's a sign the traffic is going through Squid).
Really no idea?
Did you check the box to enable logging on the main squid config page?
Yes I did!
i've got a quite similar problem, when i check the "enable logging" box i can't access to internet anymore.
i've tried to enable access_log by editing manually squid.conf but without results.
any suggestions would be really appreciated
Sorry, I still have no solution.
My problem seems a bit different though, as the box is checked and I have no problem getting to the Internet.
But I haven't tried to edit the config file, which one is it?
