Squid3 unavailable after 2.2.4 upgrade

  • After upgrading from 2.2.3 to 2.2.4, squid3 and squidGuard still show up as installed packages, but there are no links to the configuration pages in the webConfigurator Services tab and they don't show up in in Status -> Services. Is this one of those instances where the squid3/squidGuard packages need updating to comply with a new layout? It has been a while, but I recall reading something about that when the postfix forwarder package broke.

  • Hi, I had the same issue.
    Logging in using SSH and executing:


    Did the trick for me and fixed some issue; even after a reboot squid seems to work fine again.

    After that i was able to execute the start and stop from the GUI too.
    Or from the command line:

    /usr/local/etc/rc.d/squid.sh start

    Note: I have squid running on a port above 1024
    Check the tunables under system -> advanced and set the minimum port value from 1024; (default) to 0 to disable this and run squid on i.e. port 80
