Upgraded to 2.2.4, now cannot start squid3

  • Upgraded to 2.2.4, now cannot start squid3.

    I even tried completely uninstalling, then reinstalling the package and now even the GUI components for squid proxy are missing.

    Also I'm getting literally hundreds of entries in the system log file that say:

    "kernel: r 1 to be resource, boolean given in /usr/local/pkg/squid.inc on line 90"

    These lines are repeating 4 or 5 times per each second, and filling up the system log rapidly.

  • Make a config.xml backup and then try again by installing from scratch then restore your config.xml.  For me, squid never works after any upgrade until I reboot the box or stop & restart the squid service.
