Error enabling cachemgr with squid
I am trying to enable cachemgr on squid following the guidelines in https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=14609.0
However I cannot find a directory named squid in '/usr/local/etc/'
I have tried re-installing squid. Stopping and starting the service, but it did not help.
Could someone please help me on this?
I am on the latest version of pfsense
built on Thu Jan 22 14:03:54 CST 2015
and the squid package version is 2.7.9 pkg v.4.3.6
Many Thanks for your help.
Hava a look here…
Thanks newbie,but it is the same setup that I was following.
There is a line to execute 'cd /usr/local/etc/squid'
My issue is, I don't have the above folder in my pfsense box.

You're trying to follow a 6yo guide for something that has changed a lot since. I don't know how ot fix this under 2.2 but if I need ot look at some cache stats, I just shell in and run
squidclient -p 3128 mgr:info
There isn't even a cachemgr.cgi in the /usr/local/www folder. Copying it in from /usr/pbi/bin/libexec/squid and running it results in a 500 Server Error.
Thanks for your reply KOM. I will check this ones Im in the office.
Is there any mechanism in the forum to mark these obsolete methods as obsolete?
Many Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Thanks again KOM. When I tried the command
squidclient -p 3128 mgr:infoI got timeout errors, but could be easily fixed by including the server IP address (I used loopback address).```
squidclient -p 3128 -h 127.0.0.1 mgr:info
