  • Your problem is likely with squidGuard and not Squid.



  • @firewalluser:

    Might also be useful.

    and this one.

    i did followed it which basically cleared cache. will report back if problem arises.


  • Clearing the cache won't help if the problem is squidGuard, which it appears to be since the errors are all coming from the URL rewriters, which is squidGuard.

    yes i found exact problem

    i tried both squid and squid3 and both affected by this problem
    when i enable squidfilter and use urlfitler blacklist.. and reboot pfsense … both squid and squidguard would be down. and i cannot run any of them regrardless whether i start squid or squidfilter first.

    but as soon i REDOWNLOAD the urls in blacklist table and it finishes both services automatically startup..

    seems the url downloaded are lost after reboot. .. ?

    • Stop running this on nanobsd
    • Or, stop enabling /var and /tmp ramdisks!!!

    this is not nanobsd.. this is inside a hypervisor running in vmware on dell optiplex 755 c2d 2.33 and 12GB ram..
    also /var and /tmp ramdisk disabled as per gui.

    when i go to System: Advanced: Miscellaneous > under heading RAM Disk Settings (Reboot to Apply Changes) …
    below option is unchecked.
    Use memory file system for /tmp and /var
