Squid + SquidGuard stopped service @boot

  • Hi guys I installed squid and squidguard.

    squid and squidguard service is always stopped at boot.

    i have to shell with this command to start squidguard "squidguard -c all -d"
    then squid will reply: squidGuard: cannot open config fill all
                                                      going to emergency mode.
    then SquidGuard service will start.

    squid is still stopped.
    i tried to start it, it shows started after few seconds it stops again.
    it happens whenever there is a custom option in squid.

    the custom option is inserted automatically by squidguard.
    i remove it.
    and then ill see that squid service is now running.

    problem is.
    squidguard doest seem to block pornsites.
    and i think the custom option is used to call squidguard.
    but i removed it to be able to start the squid service.

    please help dunno what to do now.

  • Posting multiple threads about it wont help you any faster.

    I've already answered your other post here.

  • This may be related to empty blacklist after a reboot.

    this script created by carlospicture placed on /usr/local/etc/rc.d may help:

     #!/usr/local/bin/php -f
        $incl = "/usr/local/pkg/squidguard_configurator.inc";
        if (file_exists($incl)) {
            sg_reconfigure_blacklist( "http://www.shallalist.de/Downloads/shallalist.tar.gz", "" );
