Squid 3 and SquidGuard Installation



  • I am trying to install/configure squid3 and squidGuard.  When I install squid puts the following in the integration's field

    url_rewrite_program /usr/pbi/squidguard-i386/bin/squidGuard -c /usr/pbi/squidguard-i386/etc/squidGuard/squidGuard.conf;url_rewrite_bypass off;url_rewrite_children 16 startup=8 idle=4 concurrency=0

    This is not where squidGuard is installed and thats not the proper location of the config file.  If I change this in this in the squid.conf after I reboot it reverts back.  Additionally if I change this in the web gui it seems to break squidGuard and it will only start if I go to the cmd line and type the following

    squidGuard -c path_to_config

    How do I change this to the proper config file without break squidGuard.  I am running the latest version of pfsense.

    I checked squid.inc and squidGuard.inc and squidGuard_configurator.inc.  I was not able to find anything in these files that might suggest where these configs are.

    any info would be appreciated.

    What version of pfSense are you running? And how were the packages installed?



  • pfsense - 2.2.6-RELEASE
    They were installed using pfsense package management.
