SquidGuard wont start and kills squid on virtualbox and windows 7



  • This post is deleted!


  • It should work fine.  Are you running 2.2.4 x64?  Install fresh and get squid working first, then add squidguard.  Squidguard is a helper app that gets called by squid for every URL being processed, so it's not really a service that starts and stays running.  Were there any relevant error messages in the System log?



  • I'm glad you said this 'cus this was my next step. I had installed 32bit and I'm working on using 64 now. Will report on the results.



  • Squid used to be broken under i386 a few months ago, IIRC.  Don't know if it got fixed since i386 is being deprecated.



  • ok guys so I installed 64 bit and the issue keeps happening. SquidGuard kills squid and nothing gets filtered plus I can't get online. Any ideas? I'm stuck…

    Good that there are the real time logs in Squid… No ideas, because you posted ZERO information here.



  • which logs would be helpful exactly?

    This is the general log last 50 entries:

  • so I googled this myself "The redirector helpers are crashing too rapidly, need help!" and someone said that creating a custom category fixes this… so far that works. WTF!?


  • Banned

    Well known fact related to the PBI packaging supercrap, if you search this forum. You need at least one entry there (may be completey no-op/fake one) – otherwise the crap-o-matic won't find libs or what.



  • yeah looks like that fixed it… will make sure to add to my box of tricks. I have 4 of these machines running and they always worked out of the box. but i do have custom whitelists on all of them.
