I am trying to setup a customer error page for our squid reverse proxy.
We have IP-Whitelisted some of our websites allowing potential customers to 'request a demo' after which their IP addresses will be added to the whitelist.
A customer visits our website (http://demo.oursite.com
) without being in the whitelist
The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: http://demo.oursite.com
Unable to forward this request at this time.
This request could not be forwarded to the origin server or to any parent caches.... etc
Customer tries to access the following (https://demo.oursite.com
Site does not load for them at all. Website unavailable message generated by their browser.
Rather than seeing these results, we would like them to see our custom html file telling them to request a demo.
I have tried editing the error message in the file on the sever, restarting squid but it still displays the same old message.
Tail of /var/logs/cache.log:

1) I would like the same effect whether they connect through HTTPS or HTTP. Why is it not connecting at all via HTTPS and showing the error message via HTTP?
2) Other than edit the error message file, what else must I do to get the customer error message displayed?
