Squid Proxy on Linux
I need help with Squid Proxy Caching Software.
I have reviewed the official Squid documents and searched the web extensively for it but couldn't find a simple configuration guide.
Here is my problem:
1- I installed FREEBSD release 7 [ Full Installation ]
2- I installed SQUID 3
3. added only
4. run the command
5. ./squid start
but ./squid -k check
Squid: error: could not send signal 0 to process 15456: (3) no such process
what is the minimum configuration i can do to start using squid just ?
Moved from Windows to Linux
by default you'd need to change nothing from the default configs, you really need to provide more information as to why it's not loading for us to help you. check the squid logs files for information in this area.
Thank you for your prompt reply. I really appreciate it.
I am attaching the log files and squid.conf file
oops i just notice that i can't put attachments.
here is the
i have added
http_access allow all
icp_access allow all
cache_dir ufs /usr/local/squid/var/cache/ 100 16 256
Did you read the log files then? Have you resesrched that FATAL line? seems like your DNSisn't working.
It's working now with little tuning in the squid.conf file and adding chmod +777 to /var/logs
Now a quick question for the Squid Guru
How I can I add user authentication for the proxy
Anyone who connects to the proxy should get a username and password for verification..
how can I enable this on squid.
well that's the time when you need to refer to standard documentation. Google for "squid authentication" and you'll get plenty of information.
I checked the standard documentation,
it says tp locate ncsa_auth
find / -name ncsa_auth
gives me nothing.
there is nothing in the /usr/local/squid/bin or /usr/local/squid/etc or /usr/local/squid/libexec
where can I find the ncsa_auth ? and how can I download it for FREEBSD
I have squid version 3
